Creating Video Walls

About a month ago, my dad showed me a clip from a program on CBS that was by far one of the coolest things I had seen in quite awhile.  The show is “Innovation Nation”, and it featured the work of a company called Obscura Digital out of San Francisco.

Quick background via a description of the “Innovation Nation” series from their website:

The Henry Ford’s Innovation Nation is a weekly Saturday morning show on CBS that showcases present-day change-makers from all over the world who are creating solutions to real needs.  The intent is to stimulate curiosity and to inspire audiences with entertaining yet educational stories about yesterday and today’s visionaries and turning points that changed the course of history, as well as innovations and inventions that are changing the world today.

Cool, huh?

Essentially, Obscura takes projectors and walls and turns them into digital art.  Not just generic walls inside a building – think the outside of the Empire State Building in NYC, the front of St Peter’s Basilica in Rome, the Grand Mosque in Abu Dhabi.  It’s bananas.  Check out the video below to see more!  And pay attention to the end…what they do with a pool table is insane.

Cheers!
