Today in system hacks brings us 3D transformation for all your photos. Do you feel like the next bunch of pics you want to share with family and loved ones don’t offer enough zip or pizazz?

Then try this 3D Face Reconstruction tool from researchers at The University of Nottingham’s Computer Vision Laboratory.

Be closer to actor Elijah Wood than ever before!

3D face reconstruction is a fundamental Computer Vision problem of extraordinary difficulty. -Computer Vision Laboratory

This may appear at first glance to be a silly gimmick. But what the AI has pulled off is actually quite impressive. According to the research team, AI usually assumes the availability of multiple images as input. This system only needs one image. Another major hurdle is communicating between the endless range of facial poses and expressions. But the Computer Vision Laboratory found a way.

3D facial recognition could mean many advancements in Augmented Reality and social media are on the horizon. Will you be on board?
