Having your own invisibility cloak could soon become a reality thanks to the iPhone X. Kind of.

Japanese developer Kazuya Noshiro showed off a demo of an app he’s working on that uses the iPhone X’s facial recognition features to completely camouflage a users’ face with the background. The trippy effect almost makes you look like a set of floating eyeballs with hair on top.

Watch his face disappear:

Noshiro revealed that he’s working on the app with Japanese game development platform Unity. It’s unclear how the feature will be used, but it’s one of the most exciting combinations of AR and facial mapping that we’ve seen so far.
