Virtual Face Off

Robert Zemeckis pioneered face mapping techniques in films such as The Polar Express and BeowulfEA have already deployed similar techniques in their various sports franchise games. But with Apple and Skype blazing the trail for face time video conferencing etc. you can start to see how something like this amazing demo for real-time face mapping might start to integrate itself into our daily routines.  I dread to think how it might be abused (as it surely will be as with everything else) but no doubt its first real use will be for “re-skinning” yourself with some sort of avatar.  Quodos to Arturo Castro for pushing the boundaries!
