This study presents an alternative approach to display traditional multimedia with Projection Mapping—a technique which allows pictures and videos to be projected onto 3D objects to create more excitement and engagement among the audience.  A framework for the low-cost projection mapping was achieved in this work. Simple and complicated geometric objects were experimented with suitable videos. The audience felt engaged and were satisfied with the outcomes of this project. From the survey of 79 audiences, their overall satisfaction was 4.37 out of 5. Low-cost projection mapping could also assist in other useful applications such as providing technical training or studying guidance.
