Paris terrorised by projected Tiger

French creative studio Le3 has been terrorising Paris in recent days with its latest art installation, called Golden Tiger. The team is projecting recorded footage of a running tiger onto the streets of Paris from a moving vehicle. The apparent running speed of the beast is controlled by the speed of car, via sensors in its wheels.

A few commentators have pointed out that the project is rather similar to one executed in Brazil back in 2005, but a quick comparison shows a much better quality of projection and smoother animation. Things in street mapping have clearly moved on.
