BA Uses Incredible 4D Projection To Show Off Its New A380

BA has released an incredible video using 4D projection to celebrate the launch of its first A380 flying from London to Singapore.

The video uses a technique known as projection mapping: five HD projectors are positioned around the 1:20 scale model of the plane while custom animations then blanket the aircraft inside a giant lightbox.

The result is something that's not unlike a 'Holodeck' as the projectors can place the plane in almost any scenario whether it's flying above the skies or taxiing along a runway.

Of course they wouldn't just do something as simple as that, so instead you get a myriad of animations, aerodynamics and video.
