TimeWheel | The Rundown Live

The technology used to produce this remarkable, real-time 3D face mapping is the Omote from Nobumichi Asai. By utilizing advanced sensory technology, the Omote is able to rapidly locate and map the contours of one’s face, at which point it locks on and can then be used to entirely alter facial appearances in real time, even as the actors moves around on-stage.

With its level of detail and precision, the Omote is going to revolutionize the live entertainment industry as these instantaneous changes in facial features can achieve a level of submersion in live performances that ordinary makeup and affects are not capable of. From animals to aliens and robots to deities, the possibilities presented by the Omote are going to change live entertainment forever.
