Following up on their IllumiRoom concept, Microsoft’s RoomAlive tech surrounds users with video, and allows them to interact with content. Sadly, it requires multiple projectors and Kinects, so we doubt it’ll ever be produced.

One of the most mindbending uses of projection mapping demonstrates how a model’s face can be digitally replaced when the tech is combined with real-time face tracking. If you happen to live in Tokyo, see a live demo on 8/28/14.

The music video for Save Me, a single from the latest album of France-based singer Irma. Shot in one take, the video makes great use of projection mapping and perspective to go through different emotions and environments.
