Building The Future Of Connection With Lifelike Avatars.

The world is changing and technology adapts.

Facebook recently showed how their Codec Avatars project is progressing – the results are already impressive.

Lifelike avatars are the way we will communicate within the next 10 years.

These avatars show photorealistic face models that accurately represent the geometry and texture of a person in 3D (i.e., for virtual reality), almost indistinguishable from video. 

Video communication and calls are outdated, while VR / AR should take communication to a fundamentally different level. It will have a huge impact on Customer Service – communication is key, imagine being in a meeting with a customer face to face while in real life you’re working from home. And Facebook invests a lot of resources in this: 10 thousand employees work on mixed reality projects, which is almost 20% of the entire state. 

Zuckerberg also likes to say that the future of user interfaces is VR / AR.

Telegram and other Facebook competitors cannot be envied: no one has enough resources for 10 thousand people to be engaged in such a long-term project. But this is definitely the future.

In the video that you see here, a Facebook employee and a participant in the experiment communicate with each other in VR reality. Already much better than a few years ago, but there are problems with facial expression, tongue and eye contact. The goal is to create a virtual space that is indistinguishable from reality. It’s as if a person is standing next to you and looking right into your eyes. 

In the future, companies that will use avatars will have a huge advantage over its competitors. Moreover, these technologies can eventually be integrated into our everyday lives.
