Here is a cool piece of technology that turns your selfies into 3D avatars. Loom.ai relies on computer vision, machine learning and VFX to bring your face to VR, gaming, and messaging environments. Your avatar can be fully animated in 3D. According to the developers, users will be able to change hairstyle and other features of their avatar.
The processing happens in the cloud and should take a couple of minutes. You can view the results in VR using the Sketchfab feature.
