Contrary to poular belief, 3d technology is not just movies and television. The opportunities to consider are plenty, such as 3d development, 3d gaming, 3d printing, 3d cad, 3d animation, 3d projection, 3d environments, 3d mapping, 3d websites, 3d production, 3d interaction and so many more possibilities.
There are very few services that carry the profit margin of 3d projection mapping, not to mention the satisfying viral appeal that goes along with it, making this niche a huge winning venture for both business and client.
