INORI (prayer)  Super High Speed Face Mapping (1000fps) {Face Hacking}

INORI (Prayer) is a proof of concept inspired by a call for artists and technologists to collaborate on works that push boundaries. Innovations in the fields of projection mapping and facial tracking are allowing artists to do some amazing, and creepy, things with digital images projected onto both inanimate and animate objects. In just a few years the technology has advanced from still images being projected onto static surfaces, such as buildings, to animations being projected onto moving faces.

THE NEED FOR SPEED

Land speed record The land speed record (or absolute land speed record) is the highest speed achieved by a person using a vehicle on land. There is no single body for validation and regulation; in practice the Category C (“Special Vehicles”) flying start regulations are used, officiated by regional or national organizations under the auspices of the Fédération Internationale de l’Automobile.[1] The land speed record (LSR) is standardized as the speed over a course of fixed length, averaged over two runs (commonly called “passes”).[2] Two runs are required in opposite…

C’mon man, it’ll be fun! That pretty much describes belly tank racing, a type of car racing that evolved in the 1940s and 1950s using surplus plane parts from WWII. Streaking across dry lake beds in the American West, belly tank…
