HyperMask: Talking head projected onto moving surface

Abstract

HyperMask is a system which projects an animated face onto a physical mask, worn by an actor. As the mask moves within a prescribed area, its position and orientation are detected by a camera, and the projected image changes with respect to the viewpoint of the audience. The lips of the projected face are automatically synthesized in real time with the voice of the actor, who also controls the facial expressions. As a theatrical tool, HyperMask enables a new style of storytelling. As a prototype system, we propose to put a self-contained HyperMask system in a trolley (disguised as a linen cart), so that it projects onto the mask worn by the actor pushing the trolley.
