FaceSwap on Microsoft/Dell event

Written by VicarVision on . Posted in Blog, Current Events, Media, Past Events

Last week the Halloween party started already at the Brussels office of Microsoft/Dell:

The faces of several Microsoft employees were blended with a horror face that moved based on your facial movements in real-time!

The audience had a blast with scars running from cheek to cheek and pins coming from their face, simply amazing.

The experience wouldn’t be the same without a fully customized FaceSwap theme that contained the slogan “Happy HelloWindows 10”.
