Wow. Just wow. My own face almost fell off at 1:18.
Omote is the result of collaboration that was led by artist Nobumichi Asai, featuring contributions from CGI experts, graphic designers and make-up artists.
Asai has worked in the past with major companies such as Subaru to project computer graphics onto subjects. However, the locations where the graphics are projected onto in the past were all stationary, so the ability of the Omote to follow the person’s face as it moves and adapt its projections accordingly is a huge development for the system.
Essentially, Omote can be viewed as electronic make-up, with the ability to project practically anything on a person’s face.
