    Not every 3D project requires cumbersome glasses and a $20 IMAX ticket. Hot Wheels showed us an innovative way to advertise its product using a large projector and some imagination. Now, Lexus is using the same style to tout its CT 200h, and it's using a Los Angeles landmark to play background duty. First opened in 1927, the Roosevelt Hotel is a piece ...
