As projection mapping gets more sophisticated, and the processing power of tablets and smartphones increases, we are going to start seeing some really cool uses of the technology. In the video below, NuFormer shows off some pretty slick uses of iPads, iPhones, and Gesture based manipulation (Kinect Based) of the projection surfaces.
The real highlights for me aren’t the tablet or smartphone integration, it’s the gesture based demo. That alone allows projection mapping events to become a seamless interactive experience with the audience. It’s no longer simply passive viewing like the experience with your TV. In addition the gaming demo is pretty impressive as well, and for the same reason. It allows the audience to engage with and participate in the sensory experience that makes projection mapping work.
