EmbodyMe is an app that lets you automatically create a 3D model that looks exactly like you from just a single photo of your face and communicate with people in various ways as if you were really talking to them in person.
With any photos, not only your own, you can easily transform into a celebrity or friend, switch gender, or otherwise become who you truly want to be.
Your hand and body gestures and facial expressions are mirrored in real time in your VR avatar, creating a sense of presence as if you were really there.
You can not only engage in real communication in which users talk, shake hands, and punch each other while changing expressions, but can also enjoy communication not possible in reality, such as taking medicine to become ugly, flying through the sky with balloons, or being stuck with arrows.
Users can also take commemorative photos with the people they meet, or take videos singing and dancing together, and share these on Facebook or Twitter.
