This Company Buys People’s Face For Rs 28,000 To Make Realistic Masks

The company creates 3D-printed masks with real faces on them. For each face, the volunteer will receive $380 or around Rs 28,000.

What would it feel like if someone can wear your face and then look exactly like you? Creepy, isn’t it? No, this isn’t a science fiction novel’s plot. As it is actually what Kamenya Omoto from Japan is planning to do.

The company names the project “That Face.” The company creates 3D-printed masks with real faces on them. And it is looking for volunteers who offer their faces that will be printed on the masks. For each face, the person who shares it will receive $380 or around Rs 28,000.

Kamenya Omoto will sell these masks for $750 (around Rs 55,000). While the mask only has the half front of the face, it still looks extremely realistic. The wearer can’t show their emotions like a real person though. But it is still creepy enough.

Kamenya Omoto is known to make authentic masks depicting Japanese folklore characters for theaters. As of now, only applicants from Tokyo who are 20 years old or older can apply for the project. These people will get a chunk of the profits if the mask with their face becomes a hit.

While this might sound fun and cool since you can make money out of it, you should also understand that people could buy these masks and uses them for bad deeds. People could be wearing these masks to hide their identities and put those with the real face in trouble. CCTV cameras are not clear enough to capture that the one wearing the masks can’t show their emotions, except that they look just like you.
