Why? Because It's Cool: San Francisco's Old Mint Bedazzled By Seven HD Projectors

Posted By on Tue, Apr 28, 2009 at 9:59 AM



The bad news: This stellar display of HD light show projection by Obscura Digital is almost certainly the precursor to the next wave of high-tech Budweiser and Coors ads that we'll one day tune out.

In the meantime, however, the San Francisco company's recent transformation of the city's Old Mint into a 3D palate is still pretty darn cool. We can be jaded tomorrow.

  • U2 @ SAP Center in San Jose
    Last night U2 performed the first U.S. date of it’s Innocence + Experience tour at SAP Center in San Jose. All four band members were present despite recent injuries sustained by both Bono and Edge. The sold out show took audience members on a walk down memory lane as the band revisited their roots. The innovative stage and lighting used gave the arena show an intimate feel, and engaged audience members in all sections of the venue. Photographs by Sugarwolf.
  • Bay to Breakers 2015 - NSFW
    The 103rd annual Bay to Breakers 12K race was packed on Sunday despite the cold weather. With a starting point a few blocks from The Embarcadero, people dressed as bananas, Elvis and everything in between ran west through the city and finished at the Great Highway where breakers crash onto Ocean Beach.
