December 23 2014: Intel has launched a new chat app that harnesses facial tracking algorithms to render your expressions & voice onto an array of 3-D avatars. It's called Pocket Avatars and is available free for Android and iOS ( Apple) devices.
You can record and share personalized messages that mirror your own facial gestures and voice. You can smile, blink, wink, raise and lower eyebrows, stick out their tongue and even sing the lyrics to the songs of your alter ego.
The latest addition last week, is pop star Katy Perry.
