This is a breathtaking demonstration of 360-degree digital projection mapping technology showcased at Mons2015: European Capital of Culture in the city of Mons, Belgium.  

The entire historic courtyard of the Le Carre Des Arts school was transformed into a sensational outdoor theater to display this 11-minute sci-fi show for the opening ceremony of this massive arts, culture and design expo.  The mind-blowing system, designed by Dirty Monitor, uses 20 synchronized digital projectors to create an otherworldly experience flashed across a 4400-square-meter area, with epic visions of the year 10,191 introduced by an alluring AI host named "CLOE."  

Check it out, and don't be too tough on your poor flatscreen TV.
