    Watch ‘Laser Makeup’ Transform This Model’s Face In Real-Time - Nobumichi Asai

    Discover after the text the VIDEO

    No, this isn’t CGI.

    Here’s a pretty mind-blowing combination of art and technology. 

    Using highly precise light projectors, a person’s face can be make to look like it’s being altered in real-time through “Projection-mapping.”

    Projection-mapping is the art of focusing light onto an object to give it the illusion of movement and depth.

    It can be tough to explain, but an easy way to think about it is to remember what it looks like when someone walks in front of a projector during a movie or presentation.

    Besides throwing up a hand to shield their eyes, you momentarily see their face covered by a blurry version of whatever is supposed to be on the screen.

    Now imagine if that projector could track a person’s face and cast extremely focused light onto them to change their appearance.

    That’s exactly what happens in Nobumichi Asai’s new projection mapping demo, which shows how a model’s face can be transformed using the technology. We first saw the video over at The Verge.

    First, the dimensions and contours of the model’s face are scanned into the system. The model wears those tiny dots to allow the system to track her exact movements and position.

    The President

    The 3200 year old tree so massive that it had never been captured in a single image until recently.

    This giant sequoia stands 247 feet tall and measures 45,000 cubic feet in volume. The trunk alone measures 27 feet and the branches hold 2 billion needles (more than any tree on the planet).

    This picture took a team of photographers from Nat Geo, 32 days and stitching together 126 different photos to make.

    i love redwoods because they are at the very limit of what the dynamics of capillary action allows to exist i’m glad an evolutionary niche exists for “THE BIGGEST FUCKIN TREE THAT CAN BE”

fig. 1: aaron diaz has never read his own comic

makes sense that he’s never read his own comic considering he never makes updates for it either
