Fast automatic generation of 3D face models from photos

A research group at Waseda University is working on technology to generate 3D models of people's faces easily, without requiring the use of special equipment such as range scanners.

"The technology we're suggesting here is for generating a 3D model as quickly as possible from a single photo."

"The system has measured the shapes of lots of faces in advance using 3D measuring equipment, and by combining those faces, it estimates the shape of each face input."
