My weekend shift is over, Kotaku, so I'll leave you with this video of Tokyo artist and producer Nobumichi Asai's impressive and slightly disturbing "face hacking" that I saw on Geekologie.

The effect — which we've seen previously — is achieved using face-tracking, projectors and 3D animations, according to Blastr, and is shown here being demonstrated to a group of Japanese talk show hosts.


It's really cool, but my actual favorite parts are when the camera cuts back to the hosts for their reactions.

Thanks Kotaku! It's been real!
