Nobody has done it before
When Artist meets Technology these is one of the extraordinary projects seen in the last years on Face Tracking . OMOTE means Face or Mask in Japanese.
The team also wanted to express Japanese beauty to the world. ‘When imagining global definition of Japanese aesthetics, philosophy, and virtue onto a face’ Kuwahara said.
For this project, they used OptiTrack sensors for speedy response, and developed in program language C++ for minimal delay.
Is these a near future technology for new virtual Games and Movies technology ? Most important we should re-thinking about new ways to tell the our stories for these kind media.
