This is a really cool project by Eric Lundquist. He will be displaying his Video Head at Maker Faire in Austin. I can’t wait to see it in person.

The Video Head Project was inspired by the amazing art project called Drum Head by Murat Konar. In a attempt to take it to the next level, the Video Head will have multiple mouth and eye expressions in order to display a wider range of emotions and interactions. The foam head gives the image an eerie lifelike 3-d appearance.

    This pretty cool, but conceptually has been a part of the Haunted Mansion at Disneyland since the 60′s.

    Yes, nice work.

    The Disney one of Madame Leota (http://www.doombuggies.com/secrets_seance.php) is slightly different as it projects from the inside the mask. There was an MIT Media Lab telepresence project in the early 1980s called Talking Heads that used this technique too – Steward Brand talks about it in his book “The Media Lab: Inventing the Future at MIT” – but I can’t find anything online about it now…

    Bowie did something like this for his earthling tour back in 97.
