The Kumo Project merges nature with technology by projecting images and films to the sky.

The Kumo Project is a collaborative effort of ultra-technologists group Team Lab and air-conditioner manufacturer Daikin Industries.

The two companies worked together to develop a way to project images and films onto the clouds in the sky. Clouds are white and billowy in nature and should be a great alternative to a regular screen. This is what both groups wanted to take advantage of in their dream project, the Cloud Project.

The Kumo Project team conducted trial experiments and came to realize that some images are easy to project onto the sky while some are not, and that there are various factors that come into play, such as position of the equipment and image sizes. They worked on finding the projection method and form of art that would work best.
