3-D Projection Mapping: The Latest in Learning Anatomy

More

Using sensors and video projectors, scientists at Gifu University in Japan have developed a tool that models the human face. In this video from DigInfo TV, associate professor Ryugo Kijima demonstrates how the system works. The physical interface aims to provide a richer learning process than a two-dimensional visualization. "Because it uses real objects, it provides a haptic experience without needing special equipment," Kijima explains. The setup currently uses a plastic bust of a human head but it looks like it could be used to project directly onto a real face. Too see what that might look like, check out this music video that uses an Xbox Kinect to projection-map video onto the singer's face.
