3D video mapping projection brings buildings alive

Get together a group of talented 3D artists, project their work onto buildings with a battery of powerful projectors, and here's the result. NuFormer Digital Media is calling this techno-artform "the communication tool of 2009" for good reason — the projections show you something you've never seen before.

The artists can custom-fit their mind-bending designs to any building, bringing architecture to life using a blend of technology and art. Could this be the way people decorate their houses for Christmas ten years from now?

Here's another example of NuFormer's work, in a 3D video mapping projection created for Volvo:

Amazing. Here's one by another group working on 3D projection, Urbanscreen:
