Codec Avatar – your life like Virtual Reality avatar

Facebook Reality Labs have shown their progress with development of avatars for Virtual Reality (VR) last week. Codec Avatar is about measuring and capturing the smallest signals of the human body and replicate them to create virtual interactions that are indistinguishable from real ones.

Next gen personal avatars will improve social presence and help to make human interaction in VR space feel more natural.

Codec Avatars side-by-side comparison

A side-by-side comparison of an individual and her avatar shows the technology's photorealism. The left side of the face is a recorded video of a real person making different facial expressions. The right side of the face is an avatar. Unlike other realistic avatars we see today, Codec Avatars are generated automatically — a requirement for effortless Social VR.
