Full-body tracking at Facebook hints at broader AR/VR ambitions

Facebook is planning on applying AR/VR into full-body tracking

Facebook is well known for their AR and VR ambitions. They very successfully are applying these technologies for both entertainment and communication purposes. Now they are taking it a step further, with the ambitious idea to make AR modify not just your face, rather your entire body.

Facebook’s AI Camera Team presented their progress on their blog.

“We recently developed a new technology that can accurately detect body poses and segment a person from their background. Our model is still in research phase at the moment, but it is only a few megabytes, and can run on smart phones in real time,”

the team wrote.

Facebook clearly is taking AR and VR to another level, implementing this in mobile applications would be amazing, don’t you think?
