It's true that work that Team Bondi has done animating the faces of real life actors in Rockstar's L.A. Noire is nothing short of astounding, but Janimation's facial recognition technology creates virtual faces so real you can almost smell their stinking breath.


Kotaku reader and Janimation employee Trevor Hykes passed along this incredibly impressive technology demo, demonstrating how the company's technology translates the movements of an actor's face onto that of a virtual construct.

The end result is downright uncanny. I just hope this clip isn't indicative of the limits of their tooth-rendering technology.
