Literally Talk to Your Friends Face-to-Face with Faceware Tech

Star Citizen announced today that it has partnered with Faceware Technologies that will track facial movements and stream them to your character's face. You'll literally be able to see your character speak your words to other players.

Star Citizen’s Face Over Internet Protocol (FOIP) feature was built with Faceware’s recently announced LiveSDK, which is powered by Image Metrics’ award-winning, real-time technology. Using Faceware’s soon-to-be-released facial motion sensor, this new feature enables Cloud Imperium and any Star Citizen to detect hundreds of facial movements in a variety of lighting conditions. Those movements are then instantly streamed onto the character’s face, in-game, a critical element in creating believable digital faces. The feature can also be used with the computer’s built-in webcam, though the quality of facial detection may vary.

What do you think of such technology? Would you use it to talk with your friends? Does it sort of creep you out? Leave us your thoughts in the comments.
