Also known as Spatial augmented reality, 3D projection mapping technology is used to turn objects into a display surface for video projection.
By using super hi definition projectors, specialized software, a two/three dimensional object is spatially mapped on the virtual program which mimics the real environment, it is to be projected upon.
These techniques are usually used by artists and marketers to add extra dimensions, optical illusions, and notions of movement onto previously static objects.
