Projection mapping: Car brands like Lamborghini, Audi & Hyundai Accent have used projection mapping by splashing different colors & changing background scenery at the launch of their new cars. This helps give users a feel of the various terrains that the cars can travel in and the different looks that can be customized for the vehicles.

Projection mapping is used for car & bike shows, fashion shows, trade exhibitions, basically anywhere where there is scope for showcasing designs on any surface, be it walls or ceilings or even outdoors during a rock concert! Projection mapping is fast becoming the preferred tool to advertise, entertain and inform.
