More mapping… We've listed a further five applications showing how projection mapping can effectively transform just about anything, whether it’s spacecraft, signs, sports arenas or a 600 year-old landmark!
- On a space shuttle
- On an antenna
- On a court
- On a mannequin
- On a medieval tower
on a space shuttle
The California Science Center is home to the space shuttle Endeavour, the NASA veteran of 25 missions. It is also currently the venue for a spectacular exhibition titled “King Tut: Treasures of the Golden Pharaoh.” For the center’s annual fundraising gala, BARTKRESA studio and tech partners WorldStage united both elements in a grandiose mapping which turned the iconic orbiter into King Tut’s bejewelled sarcophagus. A Dataton WATCHOUT system was teamed with six Panasonic projectors for the event.

On An antenna
And on the subject of space… Parc du Radôme showcases the antenna used for the first-ever satellite TV transmission back in 1962 (between France and the US). An impressive structure in its own right, the Pleumeur-Bodou antenna has been enhanced with mapping using four projectors covering 54 meters, programmed in WATCHOUT.

ON a court
Futsal is a modified form of soccer, played indoors with a five-strong team. For the finals of the National Futsal Cup in Portugal, Grandpa’s Lab mapped the indoor arena, turning the court into an urban landscape, a giant timepiece, and a futuristic game course – creating an eye-popping experience for futsal fans!

On a MANNEQUIN
During New York Fashion Week in 2018, projector manufacturer Epson showcased an interactive video-mapping display. The display, part of the company's digital couture initiative, allowed users to select the look on the mannequins from an iPad.

On a medieval tower
The landmark Galata Tower in Istanbul dates from the mid-1300s. With its light stone walls, and a great viewing location, the tower is a prime mapping object.
The most recent display, in April 2018, was part of the Istanbul Youth Festival and combined playful elements such as tumbling balls, video game themes and a bubbly soundtrack. The display used WATCHOUT multi-display software and eight Christie 20,000 ANSI lumens projectors. Technical solution by Visio-Vox with content created by Cream Studio.
