Super-sized airship

This airship is currently used for promoting the Despicable Me 2 movie in the United States, and of course, the name of the blimp is "Despicablimp".

The airship is 48 meters long, and was completely wrapped with a vinyl image, or to be more specific, with 1680 unfolded patches, having and average area of about one square meter each. The printout was 1.5 meters by nearly 1500 meters. 798 megapixels where used. The image unfolding was done in TouchCAD by Lundström Design in Stockholm, and the production by Team Production Ltd in Gosport, England.

Here is a link to a short presentation movie. (3.39 minutes and FUN to watch!)
