Facial Expression Replication in Realtime

The FaceShift software manages to use the depth image of the Kinect for a realtime replication of the speaker’s facial expression on an avatar’s face. Awesome. Look at the video to see how fast the approach is – hardly any visible latency between original motion and avatar and really subtle facial motions are translated to the virtual character. The software was developed by researchers from EPFL Lausanne, a research center with an excellent reputation, especially in the area of computer graphics. The software is envisioned to be used in video conferencing and online gaming contexts, to allow a virtual face-to-face situation while speaking.

Virtual Patients and Multitouch

The German project “SimMed” built a prototype of a virtual child on a multitouch table to complement medical training. It is a cooperation between university clinic Charité and Archimedes. Here is a (German) video feature on “SPIEGEL Online”:
