(TechRadar) Facebook revealed in a recent blog post that it is looking into ways it could not only overlay digital elements onto your face, but replace and track your entire body, whether in AR or VR scenarios. The most interesting element is the fact that Facebook can get its body tracking tech to work with little memory, using only smartphone imaging and processing tech.
The researchers from Facebook’s AI camera team explained, “We recently developed a new technology that can accurately detect body poses and segment a person from their background. Our model is still in research phase at the moment, but it is only a few megabytes, and can run on smart phones in real time,” the researchers from Facebook’s AI camera team explained.
