Projection mapping uses a projector or multiple projectors to create light shows on three dimensional objects. This technology can turn everyday objects into beautiful interactive light displays.
Projection mapping has many alternate names including the original academic term "spatial augmented reality and "video mapping." To use this rapidly growing new media, specialized software and creative intention are used to align virtual content with the physical world.

Projection mapping can be used for theater, decoration, gaming, live performances, advertising and so many entertainment purposes. Most Monster researches projection mapping as form of live art and uses it in correlation with built sets to create extra dimensions, optical illusions, and notions of movement where there was none before.
