Aztec Secret I've tried a lot of face masks in my life — from $6 impulse purchases to $80 award-winning at-home facials — and nothing has worked as well for clarity as this giant $11 tub of the Aztec Secret Clay Mask. It has nearly 19,000 reviews on Amazon, and after seeing it all over the internet and having a colleague call it her "most recommended product," I gave it a shot. It basically acts like a vacuum for your pores in the 5-20 minutes it's on. Like many Amazon reviews state, my best results came from mixing the mask with Apple Cider Vinegar. There are a few things that the majority of people who know me would be able to recite off-the-cuff that I love. That list would include the … [Read more...] about This $11 clay mask that has 13,500 5-star reviews on Amazon is the only thing that has helped clear up my skin

A small company in Japan that makes hyper-realistic face masks has found popularity within the tech industry, as reported by Reuters. The masks, which cost about 300,000 yen ($2,650 USD) to create, are made of resin and plastic by REAL-f Co. at the company’s location in Otsu. The company’s founder, Osamu Kitagawa, spent two years developing a method to translate facial data from high-quality photographs to 3D masks, and REAL-f Co. now receives about 100 orders a year. Each mask replicates the tiniest details of a person’s face, down to an eye’s blood vessels and fine skin wrinkles. Of course these masks have any number of real-world applications, but I have so many questions completely unrelated to those, like which face will appear in my nightmares tonight, and why does the company’s Q&A section have a question that says, “Is it OK if I lick it?” REAL-f Co. says it would like to see the masks used in the future for medical purposes and … [Read more...] about These hyper-realistic masks are being used to train facial recognition tech
OTSU, Japan, Nov 15 (Reuters) - Super-realistic face masks made by a tiny company in rural Japan are in demand from the domestic tech and entertainment industries and from countries as far away as Saudi Arabia.The 300,000-yen ($2,650) masks, made of resin and plastic by five employees at REAL-f Co., attempt to accurately duplicate an individual's face down to fine wrinkles and skin texture.Company founder Osamu Kitagawa came up with the idea while working at a printing machine manufacturer.But it took him two years of experimentation before he found a way to use three-dimensional facial data from high quality photographs to make the masks, and started selling them in 2011. 6 PHOTOS Tiny company in rural Japan makes realistic masks See Gallery Tiny company in rural Japan makes realistic masks REAL-f Co.

Elmar Platzgummer, chief executive of IMS Nanofabrication, sat down with Semiconductor Engineering to discuss photomask and mask writing trends. IMS, a subsidiary of Intel, is a supplier of multi-beam e-beam systems for photomask production. What follows are excerpts of that conversation. SE: For years, photomask makers have used single-beam e-beam tools to pattern or write the features on a photomask. These tools are based on variable shaped beam (VSB) technology. In operation, the electrons from the tool are fired in shots, which pattern the mask in rectangular-like shapes. What are the challenges in VSB mask writing at advanced nodes? Platzgummer: With scaling, the feature sizes go down. That means the shot numbers go up. That’s a simple explanation. Additionally, the jogs, optical proximity correction (OPC) and inverse lithography technology (ILT) patterns get very complex. For one rectangular via you need all kinds of circular patterns, so you get additional features that … [Read more...] about Multi-Beam Mask Writing Finally Comes Of Age
