After watching AVATAR (or even during the movie), did you dream of how you might look as a Na'vi like Neytiri (played by Zoe Saldana) or the avatar of Jake Sully (played by Sam Worthington)? If you live in Los Angeles your dream could be brought to life at The Grove at 2:00 p.m. on Friday, April 16th.

Interactive Facial Recognition Technology Morphs Shoppers' faces into Na'vis in real time

To commemorate the launch of AVATAR on Blu-ray and DVD, Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment in conjunction with the digital out-of-home company, Inwindow Outdoor will unveil an interactive digital exhibition.

The exhibition uses state-of-the-art facial recognition technology to morph shoppers' faces in real time into the natives of Pandora, the Na'vi. The Avatar face-morphing exhibition is a large, freestanding structure that will encircle the main statute at The Grove.

Friday, April 16
Press Check-In: 2:00 PM

The Grove, Los Angeles

The Avatar display is a 60' x 10' structure at The Grove and features three 'morphing stations' surrounded by vinyl and branded in Avatar themes. As mall shoppers approach the screens, facial recognition technology will hone in on their faces and transform them into Na'vi, the blue skinned species from the future made famous in the movie. Once the morph is complete, users can enter their email address via touch-screen so they can be sent the video of their transformation along with information on where to purchase the DVD.
