NTT Docomo in Japan recently unveils their hands-free videophone as part of their research on future glasses-type devices. The aim of the device is to recreate the user’s face by capturing the face using three cameras in each sides of the frames and sent to the other user with a pre-rendered 3D model of the users face.
There is also a camera at the back of the device wherein it gives a more realistic video call by capturing the actual background behind the users as well. Details like closing of the eyes and opening of the mouths are being captured in real time though the resolution for now isn’t high enough to handle the mouth and upper body parts.
However these will be increased dramatically in the future to achieve such realistic 3D captures. Check out the video below to know more about the technology. What do you think?
