“Omote” Real-Time Face Tracking and Projection Mapping


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.
