The future is here, and it's making all kinds of crazy patterns on this woman's face.

This incredible visual treat is the result of a combination of projection mapping and face tracking — as the model moves, the program recognizes her movements and displays correlating images.

Watch as her bare face shifts from dramatic stage makeup to a pool of mercury, to a robot's open visage.

Nobumichi Asai, the producer and planner of this presentation, has used technology like this on other canvases, but the face is by far the most dynamic, and melds the human and machine into one wonder-filled entity.
