These silicone masks as disturbingly realistic.

They’re all made by artist Landon Meier. He creates the masks by making digital 3D renders using reference photos from various different angles. Sculptures are then 3D printed to begin the casting process to make the silicon masks -which can take more than 40 hours to complete.

Some of his creations include familiar faces, including American president Donald Trump, N.Korean leader Kim Jong-Un, former boxer Mike Tyson and Actor Bryan Cranston.

The freakishly real masks sell for around $4,500.

 

A research team has created software that allows them to control the face of anyone in any video on YouTube. The result is a weird cross between Snapchat’s “face swap” feature and the “gibberish” scene from Bruce Almighty.
