Does face-aware technology provider MoodMe rely on body tracking technology?

2017-07-17 Tao effects AR sauce

Researching about AR effects, and we found the sparkling AR practitioners together !

The recent face recognition tracking field seems very lively,

Facebook, snapchat have to face recognition technology into their AR products.

Shang Tang completed a huge $ 410 million in financing.

It is said that the layout will automatically drive the field.

Image Metrics is also about to release a new demo.

The market seems to be thriving.

Perhaps as the founder of the sight of sand force said, Face recognition technology market, Is currently in a market that is far greater than the supply.

Although the market is hot,

But in this market,

But there are some we did not heard how,

It has been there for a long time

But not how successful small companies.

Germany’s face recognition technology manufacturers,

MoodMe is one of them

According to Crunchbase found on the information,

MoodMe was established in 2011.

Perhaps due to a single business model, their way of financing is smooth and many Investors made personal investment,

Beginning in 2011,

The current main business is the sale of face recognition, tracking, emotional perception technology.

Give APP company a white label SDK.

 

For common effects,

Such as judging gender, age, mood.

Create a virtualized student by taking pictures.

Virtual makeup makeup

Virtual audition

Face filter to face change

Change the small change

Etc. Common features,

Can be achieved through their SDK.

 

I am happy

I’m not happy

Body tracking technology was born

But this is not why I introduce them today.

Introduce them mainly because,

Recently they released a full-track video demo

This seemingly still relatively rare

 

To the market to provide mobile phone side

Body tracking aspects of AR technology companies

I have not seen how I have seen it

The current AR camera class APP mostly around the face of the article

In a similar snapchat, Mito or add this category

AR video sharing class App provides a new body filter

Will be able to improve the freedom of similar applications of video creation

If you are concerned about the addition of APP,

You can see a lot of users are currently by the photographer

Looking at the phone screen,

Remote command performers to match AR animation.

The difficulty of making a successful video is still relatively high.

Make a video,

It is likely that photographers and performers are needed

Repeated several times,

In order to achieve the desired effect.

(Originally wanted to find section of the video, but do not know how to cut from the video as the video)

But if it can be integrated into the body tracking technology.

Will be able to make it easier for them to make interesting fun AR videos.

Do not know this technology

Whether it can be the way to survive on their way?

嗯,挣钱的确不是件容易的事

最近的人脸识别追踪领域似乎非常的热闹,Facebook,snapchat都纷纷将人脸识别技术融入他们的AR产品。

商汤完成了4.1亿美元的巨额融资。

据说将布局自动驾驶领域。

Image Metrics 也即将发布新的合作demo。

市场看来正欣欣向荣。

或许正像视诀的创始人沙力所说,

(酱专访 | 曾经的少年天才,现在的机器视觉创业大叔)

人脸识别技术市场,

目前处于一个求远大于供的市场。

虽说现在市场火热,

但在这个市场里,

却还有些我们没怎么听说过,

却已经存在了很久

但却并不怎么成功的小公司。

德国的人脸识别技术厂商,

MoodMe 就是其中之一

生活艰难

根据Crunchbase上查到的资料,MoodMe 在2011年就成立了。或许是由于业务模式单一

他们的融资之路走得并不是非常顺利

投资者几乎都是个人投资,

从2011年开始,

就保持着每年都要融一轮的节奏。

从金额和时间上来看,

因该是每年都要靠筹钱才能继续经营的样子。

截至现在,

任然没有正式的机构投资者进入。

目前的主要业务,

是出售人脸识别,追踪,情绪感知技术

给APP公司做white lable APP。

对于常见的效果,如判断性别,年龄,情绪。通过拍照创建虚拟化生。

虚拟试妆

虚拟试镜

脸部滤镜把脸改大

改小改漂亮

等等常见的功能,都可以通过他们的SDK 实现。
我开心了
我不开心了
全身追踪技术出世

不过这并不是我今天介绍他们的原因。介绍他们主要是因为,最近他们发布了一个全身追踪的视频演示

这貌似还比较是少见

向市场公开提供手机端全身追踪方面的AR技术的公司我印象中还没怎么看到过

目前的AR 拍照类APP大多围绕脸做文章

在类似 snapchat,美图或者视加这类

AR视频分享类App中提供新的全身滤镜

将能提高类似应用的视频创作的自由度

如果大家有关注视加的APP,

可以看到有不少用户目前是靠拍摄者

看着手机屏幕,

遥控指挥表演者去配合AR动画表演。

拍一个成功的视频的难度还是比较高的。

拍成一个视频,

很有可能需要拍摄者和表演者

反复拍好几次,

才能达到比较理想的效果。

(本来想找段视频的,但不知道怎么从视加中把视频截取出来)

但若是能融入全身追踪技术。

将能方便他们更容易拍出有趣的趣味AR视频。

不知道这项技术

是否能成为他们生存之路上的转机呢?
