Facebook's 2.0 Codec Avatars​ are Getting So Realistic, They're Creepy

Facebook's 2.0 Codec Avatars​ are Getting So Realistic, They're Creepy

 

What Happened?

Facebook's 'Codec Avatars' are getting so realistic, that they're creeping people out. The avatars, which are powered by advanced machine learning techniques, are generated using a specialized capture rig with 171 cameras. They can then be driven in real-time by a prototype VR headset with five cameras; two internal viewings of each eye and three external viewings of the lower face.

 

 

Why is this important?

This is important because it shows how far VR technology has come in recent years. The avatars are so realistic that they could potentially be used to replace real people in certain situations, such as business meetings or conferences. This would have a number of benefits, including reducing travel costs and increasing efficiency. It will also make communication in the digital world feel more natural and more human. Of course, nothing beats meeting in the real world, but if the distance is too big or the time is too short, VR avatars could be the next best thing.

 

 

 

What does this mean for the future?

This means that we can expect to see more realistic VR avatars in the future. As the technology improves, the avatars will become more and more lifelike, until they are indistinguishable from real people. This has the potential to change the way we communicate and interact with each other in the digital world, as well as how we do business.

It will also have a huge impact on the entertainment industry, with realistic avatars being used in movies, TV shows, and video games. With avatars becoming more and more realistic, it's only a matter of time before they become mainstream. This could potentially revolutionize the way we live and work, making things easier and more convenient for everyone involved.
