What do disembodied heads, 5 singing busts and Madame Leota all have in common? You’re probably wondering what this has to do with mapped projections. In 1969 Disneyland created the first known mapped projections onto a non-flat surface. These objects, or lack thereof, were all projected in Disney’s Haunted Mansion attraction and though primitive by today’s standards, these displays opened the door for exciting things to come. Fast forward to today…
Mapped projections have since evolved and allow you to transform anything into a screen, meaning your company can connect with your audience in a much more effective way. Now that you have seen the first, take a look at today’s newest mapped projections and technology that will transform the future. Here are our 10 favorite mapped projections.
