Nobumichi Asai and a team of digital designers and make-up artists return with a new video expanding on their “Omote” real-time face tracking and 3D projection mapping idea.

    do i need a password to watch the vid?! what is it, i’m curious!

    • no its a public video on youtube, not sure why the vimeo version is suddenly private

  • dana

    can’t write this article w/o giving us the password. not cool.

    • see above (it would be pointless for me to intentionally share a private video)

  • Dactrtr

    duuuude, we need that pass

    • when i posted the video originally it did not require a password i’ve just updated the link! not sure why they did that

  • forrest ethington

    Looks like we’re finally going to get the “THEY LIVE!” musical we’ve all been waiting for. I’m not kidding. This needs to happen.

  • forrest ethington

    The OMOTE / REAL-TIME FACE TRACKING & 3D PROJECTION video is gorgeous. Definitely need an update to when the face-hacking video is visible.

  • Lord 3Clod

    that’s cool.

  • eawesterhuis

    I loved that Leopard face. That would be awesome to have your own personal drone to project that on your face for when you go out at night.

Trippy Anamorphic Sculptures by Artist Jonty Hurwitz

London-based artist Jonty Hurwitz transforms warped digital renderings into incredible anamorphic sculptures made out of bronze, copper, plaster and paint. “Anamorphosis” relates to purposeful distortions that depend on an additional device or precise vantage point to reconstruct the image. In Hurwitz’s case, cylindrical mirrors reveal each sculptures true form. See more below!
