How to Turn Your Face Into a Cool 3D Avatar (Android & iOS)

Remember the Animoji feature on the iPhone X? Yes, this feature allows us to create emoji or 3D Avatars that can follow movements and facial expressions as well as record our voices through the microphone. Indeed, these new and advanced features make many people want to feel and try it.

Well, even though the Animoji feature is owned by the iPhone, it doesn’t mean that we as Android users can’t try this feature. With an Android system that open source we can also feel the Animoji or 3D Avatar features are even cooler than those on the iPhone. To try this feature we need an application called FaceRig.

FaceRig can change the appearance of our face or face with a 3D or 2D animated display that follows our facial movements. In the FaceRig application itself, there are many choices of avatar characters that we can use, ranging from anime, animals, food, to robots with very good quality, aka HD.

The advantage of this application is that it is able to read facial movements very well, from expressions to lip movements. For those who are curious and want to try the sophistication of this application, see the following tutorial.
