Decorating With Projectors

If you’re impressed by the things being done with 3D projectors in a movie theatre, you’ll likely be blown away by the work of Mr. Beam. On the Mr. Beam website, the company describes itself this way:

Driven by the possibilities of projection mapping we passionately try to push this technique to the limit. The combination between motion graphics and physical spaces and objects leads to inspiring combinations.

One of the projects displayed on their site displays the amazing possibilities that exist in this medium, as a series of colorfully-vibrant images are projected against various surfaces and pieces of furniture in a plain white living room to create many different environments. The effect is really pretty startling. Take a look:
