Omote: Creepy, electronic “make up” for future faces #WearableWednesday

Tokyo, Japan-based artist Nobumichi Asai has just the set-up. His Omote system is for the face. He used cameras equipped with real-time face-tracking software and a projector designed to map images onto the contours, ridges and valleys.

Asai has projection-mapped video onto surfaces before, even for major companies such as Subaru. But this is the first time he’s done it on a moving object.
