Lightform is a new project created as a collaboration between three product development titans: Microsoft, Disney, and Adobe. The product is befittingly impressive considering the scale of the collaborators; Lightform aims to bring projection mapping into the home, essentially turning entire rooms into gigantic, infinitely variable scenes.

Projection mapping is a style of projection that scans the room in which it sits and adjusts its light to fit over variable surfaces — no matter whether there are angles, curves, or corners. Though the process has made advances in recent years, it had still previously been reserved for high-budget art installations and scientific prototypes. Lightform promises to be the first projection mapping system available to general consumers.

Aside from the novelty of using Lightform in one's home, the product is being advertised as a creative and convenient display system for businesses, allowing them to do things like control their menu boards (in the case of restaurants.) Indeed, the possibilities are as endless as light and creativity.
