Deepfake is a term for artificial intelligence and computer graphics tech used to convincingly superimpose an image or a video into another. Derpfakes used it to edit a youthful Harrison Ford’s face into the starring role of Solo: A Star Wars Story.
Star Wars fans looking for something different to wear this Halloween might want to check out Rubies’ inflatable version of Han Solo, frozen in carbonite. The adult-sized costume includes a battery-powered inflation fan, and a mask and gloves to complete the frozen effect.
“Yeah, I know a guy. He’s the best smuggler around.” The best look we’ve had so far at the Han Solo spin-off movie, which despite a major directorial change mid-shoot appears to be on the right track in the capable hands of Ron Howard. The Millennium Falcon looks so clean.
Master builder and effects artist Frank Ippolito saw what appears to be a photoshopped image of a refrigerator done up to look like Han Solo frozen in Carbonite. Inspired by the pic, Frank decided to build the actual fridge for himself. Tested shares the build process.
