You guys have probably seen videos online of projection-mapping technology that allows places like Disney to project virtual reality light shows on to physical structures. The new Magic Kingdom show "The Magic, The Memories, and You" uses this to spectacular effect on the castle - so much so that I actually like it better than the fireworks now. (Hit the link to watch the show on Youtube.)
In fact, the MK show recently added the lantern scene from Tangled, and it makes me positively weepy every time I see it, it's just so stinkin' beautiful. [girly sigh] (And here's just the Tangled update, if you haven't seen it.)
Anyway, I just stumbled across a Samsung commercial over on LikeCool (another great site for procrastinating) that uses that same technology on a human face, and my mind is completely blown.
Before you watch, keep in mind that the model's eyes are actually CLOSED the entire time, and his skin is painted white. So everything you see - the expressions, the blinking, the clothing - everything - is a projection. SO COOL.
Hope you guys find it as fascinating as I do:
