It’s not always cool when modern technology finally catches up to real life. Case in point: smart watches. Yeah they were cool when TV spies had them, but they’re kind of awkward in real life. Just use a phone like a normal person. But FaceRig is one of those instances where the real life tech is just as cool as the sci-fi concepts of the past. FaceRig lets you chat online as a 3D avatar that can mimic your facial expressions and mouth as you speak. Your character can be used on Skype, Twitch or any service that uses a webcam, or it can be used to make movies. Right now it’s still in development but the creators are raising money on Indiegogo to get it finished—and it’s only $5 to get the software.
