Le Petit Chef: Projection Mapping on your Dinner Plate!

Le Petit Chef: Projection Mapping on your Dinner Plate!

Projection mapping could be coming to a restaurant near you! It’s always a treat to see designers go that extra mile to create beautiful projection mapping content and this piece is no exception. Filip Sterckx and Antoon Verbeek over at SkullMapping put on a wonderful show for their dinner guests. Hit the jump to see the mini-chef in action.

As you sit down, preparing to gobble down your meal, a mini chef arrives at your plate ready to serve! In the author’s own words:

For this project, we experimented with projection onto a dinner table. By making use of a combination of 3D animation and motion capture, a miniature chef turns your dish into a projected grill. Bon app├ętit!

The chef then picks up all the ingredients, even going as far as cutting down a broccoli tree to make sure guests get the very best:

This isn’t the first time we’ve seen projection mapping on a restaurant table. Some of you may remember SubliMotion’s awesome work that was featured at the Hard Rock hotel in Ibiza. And for anyone interested in their own customized projection mapping restaurant experience, Skullmapping is taking orders. Be sure to reach out!

Truly magical!

I design, research and tinker with new sensing and display techniques (like projection mapping) to make our interactions with computers feel more natural! I've worked for Walt Disney Imagineering and Microsoft Research and made things along the way like Aireal and RoomAlive. Check em' out at rsodhi.com, @lumenra.

      I think you can get it at Skull Mapping, but I imagine it is way expensive.

    Very amusing, but it’s not real. If it was, there would be answers to the comments below. Or maybe they don’t want to sell it.

    • Hi Andy,
      This is a blog / news site. The creative agency SkullMapping created this work, and you would have to contact them about Le Petite Chef.
