For the launch of its first 2 SIM card smartphone – Galaxy Y Duos – Samsung did something surprising: a mapped projection on an human face! This video uses exclusively the video mapping technique to build several characters on a human face. The images were projected directly over an actor, as in a canvas.

Because the new SUR40 is only 4″ thick, users can also mount the device on a wall for more standard kiosk-style interactions.
The list price in the United States is $8900 and stores, hospitals and restaurants could start receiving their devices by early 2012. Pricey entrance fee, but it’s nice to see Microsoft finally getting this thing out to the public.
