As the wants and needs of customers change, consumers are increasingly more interested in ‘the experience’ that brands can offer them. Interactive projection mapping offers the solution to businesses, creating immersive experiences that captivate audiences in a way that traditional media cannot.

By allowing viewers to actively participate in the content through touch, motion, and other interactive elements, it generates a deeper level of engagement and connection in consumers, allowing brands to offer a unique opportunity to differentiate themselves in a crowded market. The projections are also imminently shareable on social media. That, in turn, leads to greater brand awareness and repeatable use of content in the future.


How much does it cost to implement interactive projection mapping?

The cost may vary depending on the scope and scale of your project. For instance, we offer both interactive wall and floor projections, each requiring different needs to implement. Therefore, we recommend speaking with us and outlining your project needs and goals to enable us to provide a better idea of the total cost of the implementation.

Interactive projection mapping can be complex, often involving various challenges, such as audience size and location, ambient, and site conditions. Therefore, we recommend partnering with an experienced service provider, like Zodiac Solutions, to help streamline the entire process and mitigate risks. 


What are the common environmental factors that can affect interactive projection mapping?

Whether your interactive wall or floor projection is indoors or outdoors, you will need to consider several factors, like the amount of ambient light within the space, the distance of the projector from the projection surface, and if there are any obstructions to overcome.
