Faceshift Uses Kinect To Replicate Facial Movements In Real-Time

New startup Faceshift is using Microsoft’s Kinect to capture and replicate facial movements in real-time. Leveraging the 3D motion capture capabilities of the camera, the application constructs an on-screen avatar that can mimic a users face quite precisely. While it certainly has applications for gaming, technology like this can be a very powerful measurement tool to gauge consumer response.
