Be The Better (Animated) You
A company called Big Stage lets you be your better self. Here's how it works: You take three digital photos of your face from different angles and then import them into the company's software. Then you can put a funky hairstyle on yourself, glasses, or a variety of expressions.
The software then overlays your facial information on whatever video clip or message you want to send. For instance, you can import your face into a YouTube clip or video game. You become the animation.
Jon Snoddy , founder of Big Stage, said he expects people to import these into social networking profiles, and even send as emails. You can put your face in a horror movie, or in a cute animation to say happy birthday to a friend.
"The Web is a big stage where people perform for each other," he said. "You can watch yourself as a hero or anyone else you can think of."
You can also record your own voice, which lip-syncs to your own speech. You're essentially building an avatar you can import into video games or music videos. The product will be available in April.
