PhotoSpeak, a really clever app that turns photos into a living 3D avatar has just been released for users of Android devices. Developed in Japan by MotionPortrait, users take a photo or use one from their library and let the app process the image into 3D movie.
The avatars lip-syncs to any conversation that is recorded on the phone, this is achieved by the apps cutting edge image processing technology. By giving the avatar a prod with your finger, it will follow by moving and blinking like a real human. Tapping the screen will reveal some smart looking Easter eggs. For users without a camera on their device they can choose a library photograph.
Users can try using one of their favorite cartoon characters, or a celebrity. Words can be put into the avatars mouth with a simple touch of the button to record. The app supports US English, Japanese, French and German languages. PhotoSpeak is only 350 yen, or equivalent currency. Available worldwide on the Android Market. Click here for more information.
