Newest Trend in Wedding Cakes – Projection Mapping
The future of wedding cakes has leveled up to incorporate the latest state-of-the-art technology, which is popularly called in the video world as projection mapping. The procedure entails using video and projector technology to impose an animated show or an optical illusion all over the wedding cake. This latest technology has taken weddings and the cake business into a new level of creativity and possibilities.
Projection mapping makes use of objects as a space or venue to superimpose video films or materials over it. One may use objects which have large spaces, like building facade, walls, landscapes or, if not, medium size objects like wedding cakes. A special virtual software is applied where a two or three object is spatially mapped through optical illusion or animation and projected over a chosen object. By way of interlinking this software to the projector, a created image can be displayed on a chosen space. Most of the time, the video is combined with an audio narrative or music to produce an entirely narrative animation.
