A developer creates an optical camouflage to “make” your face invisible with the help of an iPhone X

With the arrival of ARKit in iOS, we’ve seen all sorts of uses for Apple’s augmented reality. But if you thought that was it, you have to see this. A Japanese developer has created a kind of optical camouflage reminiscent of the Metal Gear game series. With it, he made his face invisible in real time.

Kazuya Noshiro, the developer’s name, shows his idea in the video above. Just 11 seconds in which you can see how the developer’s face shows a background identical to the one behind him. To achieve the effect, he has placed another camera behind it that records the background that replaces his face. The iPhone X then detects the face as well as its edges, leaving the mouth, eyes, and hair outside the camouflaged area.

The result is creepy , but the concept is cool . There’s no specific date for the release of this app, we don’t even know if it will see the light of day. In any case, it is a very interesting combination of technologies.

Developers continue to experiment with augmented reality, making all kinds of ideas and concepts come true

The iPhone X is capable of taking very accurate measurements of a user’s face thanks to the technology contained in the TrueDepth sensor array, the germ of which was purchased by Apple from a Microsoft vendor several years ago. Thanks to this, we have features such as Face ID, the famous Animoji and portrait mode in the front camera of the iPhone X.

Of course, it’s a very striking way of making (more or less) reality ideas similar to Harry Potter’s invisibility layer or the aforementioned Metal Gear optical camouflage.
