    Sick video mapping. Aim a huge video projector at the building and make a video that follows the contours of the 3D screen.

    3D Projection mapping is the key


    here are some options:

    and here is some more software:

    There is a video on how a simple mapping is made too.

    here are a few more projection maps to enjoy.

    I also suspect the projectors in professional setups being laser powered to maintain the sharpness.

    And here is how it's really made:

    Public space art installation using geometry mapping techniques.
    During my internship at Strukt in Vienna I had a lot of fun creating these projections together with Thomas Hitthaler and Robi Hammerle. The installation is located at Bureau Hirzberger in Vienna. The idea was to use the geometry and the paint of the wall to generate visuals fitting to it. My results were coloured stripes, and a pacman visualisation. The geometry mapping and the programming of the visualisations were realized in VVVV. The setup exists of two projectors, a pc and a timer to switch the projectors and the computer on and of.

    Cool links you-all, great info.
    This is some awesome tech. I may have a new hobby! I imagine it takes mega buck$$$ for this, tho. It's amazing if none of this is done with coherent light. The power of a non-laser projector of this magnitude (on the larger buildings, that is) must be staggering. Several tens of thousands of watts of incandescent energy I would imagine. Or if laser, maybe 20-40 Watts for this kind of large-scale graphics projection. Never-the-less, this is some cool stuff. I'd like to see one of these 1st hand up close and personal.

    Cool technology indeed. Projecting on that building is probably done with one or two very bright digital projectors like this (30,000 lumens, several hundred thousand dollars).

    Ahh, xenon lamps.. mttf <1000 hours. Okey-dokey, then .. The picture's clearer now. Still awesome to see I bet though.
