Make Your Avatar Look Just Like You?

20 Replies 1,506 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 :D
But epic idea, kudo for bugs bunny thats golden! :D

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.

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...!

If Rainbow Six games could do it, so can Home! And with the new tech coming out, don't see why not. Maybe on PS4 though :p

I'm not sure but as far as I know it doesn't require any installation...So it's worth a shot.

the technology most familiar would probably be something like what's used in the rainbow six games and some fighters where in a picture is taken using a camera then either automatically or manually the user places markers on the key facial features (nose, eyes, cheeks etc) so a 3D model can be built and the photo placed over that.

 

the most feasible way to have something similar to this in home would be to allow the user to use the camera to take a front and side shot of his/her head and have it transparent or to the side of the regular character create options allowing you to manually sculpt it to the reference

 

easy easy easy

well, as i said in another asking about the same thing :P people would completely take advantage of it, most of the home users are under age and would gladlly take pictures of thier gentlemans areas, overall perhaps a quarter of home users would do this seriously :| and besides home is FAR away from anything like this

what I suggested allows the user to accurately create their own features without the risk of someone uploading something innapropriate

I see what some people mean by rude things being put as avatars faces but how about if it had to be approved by a MOD or something in Home?
