Imagine the marvels of movie make-up transforming a face in real-time.

That's what Japanese artist Nobumichi Asai has accomplished with Omote, a work that uses a 3D visual projection system to project anything from glamour make-up to alien masks onto a living human face.

In the video above, a female model wearing no makeup sits in a chair while a light scans the motion-tracking dots on her face. Instantly, makeup appears on her face.

But wait, there's more.

The video takes viewers through several mesmerizing transformations, including one in which the model becomes a Terminator-esque cyborg. The model makes deliberate movements of her head throughout the demonstration and the effects projected on her face follows her seamlessly.
