    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.
