H&M’s Surreal Projection Mapping

A little present arrived in my inbox this morning from MUSE, the digital agency who helped Samsung bring their 3D LED TV’s to life. (Watch it if you haven’t seen it already, it’s still one of our all-time faves.) This time, they worked with H&M.

What a way to start the holidays!
