Here is a cool tech that turns selfies into 3D avatars that can be animated in a virtual space. Loom.ai relies on computer vision, machine learning, and proprietary VFX to bring your face into VR, gaming, and messaging apps.
According to the developers, you will be able to change hairstyle, eye color, and other features of your avatar. The processing takes place in the cloud and takes a few minutes. The Sketchfab feature lets you see the results in VR.
