Real-Time Program Lets People Morph Into Any Virtual 3D Character [Video]
New software has the potential to take us a step closer to the future of gaming.
FaceRig is a computer program that lets you become a virtual character simply by sitting in front of your web-cam. The software alters the users’ movements in real-time and even has a voice processing tool enabling you to transform and takeover the character completely. It works with any type of web-cam and can be streamed to Skype, Twitch or any service that uses a web-cam.
The technology involved includes real-time image based tracking technology created and provided by Swedish company Visage Technologies, and combines it with a cross-platform real-time animation and visualization framework.
