We present a novel method for fast-moving aerial imaging using aerosol-based fog screens. Conventional systems of aerial imaging cannot move fast because they need large and heavy setup. In this study, we propose to add new trade-offs between limited display time and payloads. This system employ aerosol distribution from off-the-shelf spray as a fog screen that can resist the wind, and have high portability. As application examples, we present wearable application and aerial imaging on objects with high speed movements such as a drone, a radio-controlled model car, and performers. We believe that our study contribute to the exploration of new application areas for fog displays and expand expressions of entertainments and interactivity.
