You may have seen some of the impressive light shows that can be created by using projection mapping on buildings. The surface is scanned and then software is used to create cool deformation and lighting effects that look like they’re changing the geometry of the building. The effect is profound for and spectators, but what if you were to use the same technique on a human face?
The tracking is managed by using tracking dots on the users face, this allows the projector to adjust for any movements in the subject, as well as allowing for on-the-fly adjustments to any animation patterns that are being projected on to the face. The effect is pretty surreal and while it may not serve much of a practical use, but it’s certainly cool to watch.
