More 3D Mapping Projections: Sony PlayStation

As I mentioned on my last post, we’ve seen 3D mapping projections as part of great public events using different kinds of buildings to display images promoting a brand, a content or a product. In this occasion, Sony uses the technology within a studio to create an outstanding short film promoting the Video Section of their Playstation Store. The results are beautiful.

Two Worlds: When Artistic and Commercial Visions Match to Perfection

The Japanese company is no longer the TV set leader; the PS3 is struggling to regain a predominance lost to the Wii and the Xbox Kinect; and the Walkman is now out of the market –yes, it is also true that the Walkman has had years out of the market.

I must confess it. I was quite disturbed when I first heard about Steve Jobs’ passing. I was lying in bed trying to wake up when my girlfriend read the news on Twitter. We went to bed early on the 5thand by the moment Janet was reading me the headlines the news was everywhere, literally.I couldn’t believe my eyes when I turned up my computer and realised that the whole world was in commotion by Jobs’ death. 5 out of the 10 Twitter trending topics in London were somehow related to the news; people status updates and profile pictures on Facebook were portraying products, phrases and reflections on Apple’s co-founder work and achievements; and news portals from all over the world were commenting on Jobs, Apple and even their competitors.
