Amazing 3D Projections on Buildings

Ransom Riggs

This kind of blew me away. NuFormer is a company in the Netherlands that specializes in outdoor advertising of a very peculiar sort -- done on the faces of buildings. Real buildings are mapped and modeled in 3D, and then animations are created using those models and projected back onto the building. The result is incredibly lifelike -- it nearly fools the eye -- and whoever designs these animations does an amazing job of taking advantage the buildings' nooks and crannies to make things look like they're really happening in 3D space. I guess this has been around for the better part of a year, but I'm just hearing about it now -- so I'll bet it's new to some of you as well. Cool, right?

If they can do this now, what's next? It makes me think Star Trek: TNG's Holodeck can't be far away.
