panasonic trade show - video mapping

Real time video mapping on free flying objects is now possible, opening up a wide range of uses in both the marketing and entertainment industries.

Two 115 cm diameter radio controlled AirOrbs were flown in the hourly Panasonic Magic Show at the "Integrated Systems Europe" trade show. The pilot flown AirOrbs were each fitted with 3 IR markers that could only be seen by the optical tracking system. The exact position coordinates of each AirOrb was then fed from the tracking system into the show control system that in turn controlled the Panasonic beamers to project real time video mapping content onto the complete surface of the AirOrbs as they flew freely through the air.
