So a few of my friends had stumbled across this nifty website.

http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/facerig/x/5835289?c=gallery

And I have to say there has been a few cases where I've seen a similar concept that never gave any details on if it was something open to the public. So frankly this intrigues me. With technology advancing the way it has been I'm excited to see that virtual reality/3d/real time mechanics are being worked into our social mediums to further enhance our game play or social experience with other people. What do you think? Are you excited about this concept as well? What else would you like to see improve or added to the way we communicate/game now?Just curious. Because I'm now a backer of this specific project because to me it's a step in a very creative direction and I wanna be part of this!

Looks pretty cool, not sure if it would work well in games though. What peaked my interest the most was the karaoke mode.

Interesting. I'll keep an eye on it. My other eye will remain safely attached to its socket for everyday usage.

Give me a Miku Hatsune one and I'd get it.

Funny enough that was one I saw months ago, someone did something like this but to MMD and used Miku as an example. It would be nice if there was a way to incorporate that into the program since whoever was using MMD said that their project was a work in progress.

This looks like it could help in driving the future of VR... (Especially if they can get to the point where they use the Neurowear they mentioned.) This now totally has my interest, so thanks for sharing! o.o
