The Countdown to Maker Faire Bay Area is On!


Anamorphic Pac-Man scene

Craft & Design Science

YouTube user brusspup created this anamorphic projection of Pac-Man chasing a ghost across a complex surface in his apartment. It only looks right from the one angle; as the camera moves away, you start to see how the lines have to wander willy-nilly across the walls to create the effect. [via Neatorama]

    That’s very cool! Just hate to think what the landlord is going to say come inspection time!!

      The original article says it’s painted, but it looks more like painter’s tape in the video (hard to tell for sure), which would be a great non-permanent way of making such a projection.

    The works of this artist need to be seen in person to be truly appreciated.
