Empire State Building’s Debut Light Show With Alicia Keys

On November 26, 2012 the Empire State building lit up with its new energy efficient LED light system. This light show was synchronized to Alicia Keys’ Girl Is on Fire and Empire State of Mind which was broadcasted across radio stations. People could tune in and listen to the tracks while looking out to the Empire State Building and enjoy the light show from wherever they were. The video below was taken across the river in Hoboken, New Jersey.

The idea of letting everyone enjoy the light show through the radio stations was a good one. But let’s not forget that New York is a global city and should be compared to cities like Hong Kong and Shanghai. Places where the whole city lights up at night with dazzling city wide light shows and displays.

Nokia Lumia 800 and Deadmau5 4D Projection Show: London 2011

There seems to be 2 key players in the smartphone game: Apple and Samsung (what happened to BlackBerry?). Nokia is making roads with it’s Lumia 800 Windows phone. To grab some attention for their new phone, Nokia staged a high-tech show in Millbank, London on the 28th of  November 2011. Using 3D projections they dubbed it a 4D show. The added dimension comes in the form of sound – having superstar Canadian producer and DJ Deadmau5 perform exclusive remixes.

The projection on the Millbank Tower used 16 projectors, and a canvas of 800 windows that were covered in vinyl. It is probably one of the tallest 3D projections seen to date, however is it really a 3D projection? The graphics were projected onto an almost flat surface. Regardless, it was an amazing event that Nokia pulled off, especially when you take a look at the amount of work it took in their behind the scenes video. When it comes to pure 3D projections, we think Toyota pushed the technology the most when they projected onto an Auris car from all angles with 7 projectors .
