Creating Art With Technology

real-time-projection-mapping-womans-face

Have you ever heard of projection mapping? It looks amazing on large structures, and even more incredible on a moving human face. The following video has a rather bland title (REAL-TIME FACE TRACKING & PROJECTION MAPPING), but I promise you, your mind will be blown. This is an absolutely fantastic use of technology to create beautiful art. This worked so well because the people that designed it managed to achieve very low latency tracking. If the system couldn’t track her face quickly, then the effect would have been greatly diminished. Instead, it looked a little like magic. As Arthur C. Clarke’s Third Law states… Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.
