What do you get when you combine a 1:1000-scale model of Tokyo, 3D video projection mapping and catchy techno riffs? Three minutes of awesome, that’s what.
To celebrate the 10-year anniversary of its opening, the Roppongi Hills complex (part high-rise residences, part shopping district, part entertainment venue) created this wicked cool short, Tokyo City Symphony. By projecting 3D animation onto a 1:1000-scale model of the capital city, the video’s producers were able to make the cityscape appear to dance along to the music.
What’s more, you can generate your own 12-bar mix and share it on the Tokyo City Symphony website, adding it to a growing communal stream of user-created riffs. But why oh why didn’t they include the ability to export your track to a ringtone? [Tokyo City Symphony]
