Talk Jing-cai Liu: The Wearable Face Projector

zondag 03 november 2019

Personal thoughts and opinions must remain private. This Wearable Face Projector protects you from this privacy violation. It is a small beamer that projects a different face on your face, giving you a completely new appearance.

Cameras and other technological products make for a better and safer living environment than ever before. Mega databanks and high-resolution cameras in the streets stock hundreds of exabytes a year.

But who has access to this data? It is possible that it could have commercial use, hence not only retail companies but also the advertisement industry could be very interested in this data in the coming future. They would hope to gain these personal data and information as much as they can.

In the future, the advertisement could call your name when you walk along the streets. The companies would know your interests and may set different retail strategies for you. It could be convenient for customers, but personal thoughts and opinions should be kept private.

The "wearable face projector", a product designed by Jing-cai Liu, is a hat with a built-in LCD projector that skinnes your face with an ever-shifting series of projection-mapped faces.
