Cat Mask Synchronized With Facial Muscle Movements Via Non-contact Interface

To demonstrate this technology they developed a prototype cat mask and synchronized the eye and mouth movements with that of the wearer. "We think that facial input, using the face as a controller, and outputting instructions to a character's face are all unique features. " "Current animal costumes aren't interactive at all. So if a simple system like ours is provided in appropriate ways for each purpose, the actor in the costume and the animal itself could have synchronized expressions, making the performance more impressive. " Because this interface enables facial input without physical contact, it could also enable motorcycles to be operated using a full-face helmet.

"Currently, only the eyes and mouth move. Download Faceware 3.0 : Image Metric. LIFESTUDIO:LIPSYNC. LIFESTUDIO:LIPSYNC is a new product that is an automatic lip-synching tool and can be used within the Maya package to save time for animating speaking characters. The pipeline is very straightforward: the plug-in prepares lip-synch data according to a record of speech. These data can be used as an input to a deformer of user’s choice that affects the character face mesh: it may be blendshapes, driven keys, etc. Scripts may be effectively used thanks to a simple data structure.

The Platform combines several advanced technologies, including photogrammetry, computer vision, facial reconstruction and machine learning, which together enable interactive entertainment developers to create and publish highly personalized games and applications. The enhanced level of personalization driven by Big Stage technology stems from the deeper emotional connection between users and their avatars when those avatars are constructed from actual photographs and therefore bear striking resemblances to their users which will drive up usage and micropayment transactions.
