“Omote” Real-Time Face Tracking and Projection Mapping

omote-realtimefacetracking

Nobumichi Asai and a team of digital designers and make-up artists have created a pretty amazing piece of technology. Through the use of face tracking and projection mapping a models face can be altered in real-time! This would be incredible for live performances. Watch the video below.

 

According to Slashgear, Microsoft is exploring projection mapping as an extension to their Xbox platform, dubbed IllumiRoom. The demo below is pretty incredible! Not only would content extend beyond the television but objects in the room could even appear to shift and wobble.

    This is insaaaane. Amazing, love it

  • Morijah Oslund

    Whoaa, this is wild! For arts sake, I love it!
    Though thinking of other uses for this technology is kind of scary…

  • Sarah Blum

    I want to make a haunted house with this.

  • Think about when people have personal face/body/environment hacking devices on them. We would all be whoever we want to be, wherever we want to be. The world will be a very cool yet very strange place.

Director Jordan Peele’s Alternate Ending to “Get Out” (Leaked Video Clip)

Spoiler Alert: Do not click below if you haven’t seen “Get Out” yet! I wasn’t completely mind-blown by this movie but I really enjoyed it and I’m excited to see what director Jordan Peele makes next (apparently his next “social thriller” is slated for 2019). I don’t want to say too much but I thought the end of the film was unexpected and satisfying. Now an alternate version has leaked and it’s interesting because it’s also not what I thought was going to happen. Watch the full clip below.

Ticket Giveaway: Canal180’s 8-Day Creative Camp in Portugal

180 Creative Camp is an 8-day media arts academy hosted by Canal180 in Abrantes, Portugal, from July 2nd to 9th. The event provides a unique environment for participants and invited artists to exchange experiences, learn and create together. I’ll be headed out there to do a talk at the camp and more importantly hang with the participants. It’ll be my first time to Portugal so I’m looking forward to exploring Abrantes as well.

Tickets are still available! Also if you happen to live in Abrantes I believe there are special terms for you to participate. Head over to 180.camp for more info and to see the list of speakers and workshops announced so far (more on the way).

Now for the really good news, we have a full package ticket (350 € value) to give away to one of you, which includes participation in the 8-day camp, accommodations and food. All you have to do is share a link to your website or Instagram in the comments below. Click the link below and scroll down to the bottom of this post and use the Disqus comment widget.
