Intel decided to try and revolutionize social interactions on the web with a new messaging platform, called Intel Pocket Avatars. This app allows users to use its facial recognition software to control their avatars with just their facial expressions. Users can record an audio or text message, smile, and the avatar on the other end of the line will play the recorded message and smile as well. I don’t have a faintest clue as to the specifics, requirements and limitations of such a service, but anyone willing to participate in the beta can fill the form and apply here: Intel Pocket Avatars On Google Docs
