Written by Mike Awada on . Posted in Social Media, Technology


When Skype and other types of video chat first came out, they were the cat’s meow. Now that they’re played out, what can we do to spice things up on FaceTime and the like?

3D cameras and facial and gesture recognition technology are providing the average Joe with avatar animation capabilities once available only to the precious few. Check out the video below.

Now instead of having to look at your friend’s weird shaped head during a video chat, you can pontificate with him or her in the form of a monster, alien or pug.

The software can recognize your face and all of your expressions after just a ten minute walkthrough.

This technology holds incredible promise for the worlds of communication, gaming, marketing and beyond. What possibilities do you see this technology unleashing on the world?
