OMOTE, a team of Japanese artists, have come up with a unique “face-altering” technology that blends visual design and face tracking.
What is that, you ask. Remember the slimy Gollum from Lord of The Rings and The Hobbit trilogies, or Caesar from Planet of The Apes franchise?
Yes, very soon (and I mean VERY SOON) you’ll get to see a technology that’ll revolutionize not just film-making but, possibly, the entire world.
Face capturing is done with dots (the ones they use in motion capture). Designers than create some amazing computer-aided art, which is projected on the face using an ultra-bright projector.
In simple words, it is like a mask made of light projected on someone’s face.
One day, you might as well see people wearing masks created out of light, a play with just two characters changing faces…or…a spy like Mystique. Get ready to be blown off.
