Face projection – level 2

11-09-2014 15:00

A Japanese artist found a way to project expressions onto people’s faces, so he created a facial mask.

He and his team showed their 3D facial projection to a group of people in Tokyo. Traditional Japanese culture, animation and technology inspired the team. The team also discovered that projecting a symmetrical face feels unnatural. So they project an asymmetrical face instead.

The artist and his team are looking for investors, so they can take their project to the next level.

Difficult words: symmetrical (both sides of something symmetrical are exactly the same), unnatural (looking not real), asymmetrical (not symmetrical).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
