Walt Disney Imagineering and Disney Research Zürich are building a projector- camera toolbox to help create spatially augmented 3D objects and dynamic, interactive spaces that enhance the theme park experience by immersing guests in magical worlds. A related video can be seen here: http://youtu.be/wjrylXl0tTk. It shows examples of projection-based augmented reality techniques being employed in Disney theme parks.
