Projection Mapping British Airway’s A380

British Airways partnered with Projection Artworks (PA) to celebrate the inaugural flight of the British Airways A380 (double-decker plane) from London to Singapore by showcasing an amazing projection mapped model of the A380. PA used seven HD projectors to bounce the light onto a 1:20 scale model of the plane inside a cave like lightbox to cover the floor, ceiling and surrounding backdrop.

They even threw in a little dry ice to make the effect even more pronounced. There’s no pre/post processing in the video and even though this is all geared towards selling more plane tickets, we are left with nothing short of a truly magical piece!

Projection Artworks does some great work, from indoor experiences, to outdoor build and canyon projections, be sure to check them out!

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, @lumenra.
