Guests call into the meal via Skype and their faces appear on screens attached to dolls.

Advertising agency Wieden + Kennedy's Amsterdam office is hosting virtual holiday dinners for friends and family to gather via Skype. Five dolls can be dialled into and controlled using custom facial tracking software and guests' faces will be shown on flat screens on top of the dolls.

Guests reserve 30 minutes at the agency's dedicated website for themselves and four others, and at the time they booked they all call in using Skype. The room that the dolls are sitting in adds to the holiday spirit, with a paper turkey and seasonal decorations.
