This right here is an incredible display of how fast technology is developing and also a great showing of how cross-pollination of art forms can create mind blowing results. Project Omote is a collaboration between a projection mapping specialist Nobumichi Asai, a make-up artist Hiroto Kuwahara and Paul Lacroix a digital image engineer. In the video, a model has her face scanned and mapped on which a series of graphics are overlaid in realtime. She displays slow movements and the projection stays intact- it’s amazing. It probably only works with precise movements for now, but once this is fully developed I’m sure the gaming and even the performing arts industries will be all over it (if they’re not already). Watch after the break.
