As an eye-catching way to show off his new line of street wear last week, rapper Lil Wayne used virtual images rather than fabric to outfit a display at fashion expo Magic. The booth on the crowded show floor of the Mandalay Bay Convention Center included two blank mannequins that New Jersey-based company Pearl Media clothed in outfits from the Trukfit collection using 3-D projection mapping. Virtual images of brightly colored T-shirts, patterned pants, and baseball caps were shone onto the white figures, which had shorts, trousers, shirts, and hats molded to their shapes.

The male mannequins were later taken to 1OAK nightclub for the official Trukfit Magic party, where they served as a striking decor piece on the dance floor.
