Make Your Avatar Look Just Like You?

20 Replies 1,462 Views Created 09-09-2009

I just had a thought and I wanted to post it before I forgot. Wouldnt it be cool if we could just simply take a picture of our face using a PlayStation Eye, or maybe upload a photo from the PS3, and then Home will automaticly adjust our Home avatars face to look exactly like you! I know people will put pictures of Bugs Bunny in front of the camera but it will be a laugh would it not? Just imagine walking past somebody that looks like Bugs Bunny in Home Square, just picture it for a moment!

 

 As I said this idea just popped into my head. I think you can already do this kind of thing on a PS3 game already but I cant remember which one it is... Anyway what do you think about the idea?

Awesome idea! I really like that, would be a great feature! I think uploading a photo can't be too taxing so i don't suppose there's too many technical problems..i sure a tech wiz tell me otherwise :smileyvery-happy:
But epic idea, kudo for bugs bunny thats golden! :smileyvery-happy:

Don't purchase Fallout: New Vegas, the game is broken in every conceivable way

Hopefully it'd work better than the rainbow 6 vegas 2 camera on xbox360 taking did, massive bald patch  randomly appearing and head bigger than helmets ftl.

Re: Make Your Avatar Look Just Like You?

a couple of years ago i downloaded a demo program that puts a side and front picture of you and turns it to 3D. i can't remember what it is called but hopefully could be used with HOME and PlayStationEye

They do the Gameface in most EA Sports games now, so I guess that the tech is there and its upto PS to work out how to get it to work for home.

Thanks for the feedback people loving all the comments! Just imagine what home would be like if this was an actual feature... Just imagine how many PlayStation Eyes would be sold just because of one feature...!
