It was invented by Raoul Grimoin-Sanson and it simulated a ride in a hot air balloon over Paris.

It worked by means of a circulatory screen that projects images helped by ten synchronized projectors. However, it seems there have never been any public performances as the technology didn't allow to synchronize 10 projectors.
