Second Skin is a digital skin camouflage projection device and an app which allows users to add a layer of skin to their body, particularly on their face, using high-speed body projection (smart crown) to be worn on the head. Digital skins and augmented reality filters will wrap the individual in a chosen look.

Smart Crown, it's a high-speed motion projection technology allowing for high-frame-rate and low-latency projection that overlays digital projections onto the physical face/body.

The proposed technique employs a high-speed projector called "DynaFlash," which can project 8-bit pictures at 1,000 frames per second with a 3 millisecond delay utilizing a digital micro-mirror device called "Deformable Dot Cluster Marker" (DMD) and a high-brightness LED. It will accomplish dynamic projection mapping on a non-rigid surface in particular.
