Fast Generation of 3D Face Models with a Webcam

Two researchers from Japan’s Waseda University have created a tool that is able to convert a 2D picture in a 3D model with a conventional webcam in around 1.2 seconds.

The method is based on a database of 3D face models of 1,000 people. When analyzing a picture, the system compares certain “feature points” (characteristic elements) with those of the face pictures stored in the database and almost instantly creates the 3D model.
