Two decades of healthy growth, followed by four to eight decades of slow-motion physical and mental collapse—that’s life, for most of us, despite the efforts of various deluded cranks and tech billionaires. Time spares nothing, and seems particularly to have it out for our faces, paying just as much attention to…
I can’t even begin to explain what the hell is going on in this clip made by Steve Smith and Jerry Paper for Adult Swim because holy mother it gets freaking weird. All I can tell you is that there’s a digital human head (or at least, like, the skin, eyeballs, and teeth of a human head) being put through tests that…
I'm both completely terrified and absolutely impressed by this amazing real-time face tracking and 3D projection mapping system that can digitally impose masks onto people's faces. It works amazingly well, like their faces have been completely replaced with new ones.
My eyes are brown. My face is round. But I don't have to show you that. Looksery can give me beautiful baby blues and a chiseled jaw with just a few taps.
Ever wonder what the face might look like for that skull-shaped Crystal Head vodka bottle? Well, one Scottish forensic scientist recently found out.
Talk about a scene right out of Blade Runner: By zooming in on high-resolution photographs of faces, researchers recovered images of unseen bystanders from reflections in the subjects' eyes. The technique could eventually be used in criminal investigations.
Scientists at the University of Michigan have found something really surprising and remarkable: wasps can recognize each other by looking at their faces. Until know, we thought that only animals like humans or chimps can do this. Not anymore.
If you live in Manhattan and want to see a sight you'll never forget, then travel to West Broadway and Grand Street. Look up and you'll see the disturbing 3D face of the Jell-O pudding man.
The wider a man's face is, the more likely he is to deceive others and cheat to get ahead...or so a new study claims. Is this just the new phrenology, or could there be something to the idea?
Facebook's been trying to register the word "face" as a trademark for a while, but now the US Patent Office has finally decided to grant the social network's application. Here are the details of what happened.
At Waseda University, researchers are developing a 3D face generation process that requires no special equipment. It combines 3D measurement data from thousands of faces with a single photograph to extrapolate what your features will look like, cheaply and quickly.
First Facebook didn't want anyone else to have the word "book" in the name of his or her online community and now it doesn't want anyone to have the word "face" either.
If your friends don't have iPhone 4s, you'll have no one to FaceTime with! Good thing Apple is letting you test FaceTime calls with Apple employees at 1-888-FACETIME. I got to talk to Dave. It was kind of awkward.
An app demoed today at the MWC identifies individuals—and pulls up their profiles, with facial recognition—just by looking at them. That's some fancy futuristic stuff right there... although there may be darker side. UPDATED:
So, what is it about the number 100 today? To celebrate 90 years in the business, Rollei is bringing out the Flexline 100, a very minimalist digital camera that looks a bit smartphone-esque once you flip it over.
BKIS, a Vietnamese security center, recently demonstrated that face-recognition security programs found in Toshiba, Asus and Lenovo laptops can be bypassed with a special photo.
The surgical world is abuzz today with news that a team has successfully given a woman a new trachea grown from her own stem cells. For others with damaged windpipes, it promises a future of transplants free from immune-suppressing drugs. Meanwhile, researchers are working on growing other tailor-made body parts from…
Your face has worked out so far, but in the age of exploding laptop batteries and botched nose jobs, we can all use a spare. ThatsMyFace is a service that will create anything from a life-sized mask ($200) to a full 3D sculpture of your head ($2,000) with just two 2D images from you.The service appears to first 3Dize…
Sure, iTunes' new visualizer is pretty, but you can't compete with the visceral, hypnotizing weirdness of Daito Manabe's facial electric stimulus. He tapes electric stimulators, looking like the same type used for electroshock therapy, to his face, and syncs them with his music so his involuntary facial contortions…
