A camera, a projector, and some incredible engineering come together to make an AR experience that literally drops jaws. The Lightform is a device that pairs with your projector and your work-station (a desktop or laptop). It captures the surfaces ahead of it, detecting objects, and allowing you to layer incredibly accurate animations on them, via a projector and an incredibly easy-to-use software.
Your own projection mapping tool, the Lightform is a small device that takes years of experience and skill out of something that requires talent, precision, and experience. With its intelligent structured light scanning, Lightform can create a remarkably-detailed 3D depth map, giving the software everything it needs to quickly create animations and graphics on 3D objects by simply selecting them and dragging and dropping animations. Lightform even captures 2D graphics, allowing you to bring paintings and prints to life too. Lightform’s companion software for your laptop takes all the hard work out of projection mapping, letting you select and animate objects with incredible ease, and even control/trigger animations from your smartphone, or via a smart speaker.
Not just a tool to make incredible installations that feel like they’re breathing with life, the Lightform can make a spectacular marketing tool, bringing brands, products, and exhibitions alive as 3D objects get wrapped with breath-taking moving visuals… and all it takes is a baton-shaped gadget!
