Face Motion Capturing to Manipulate Video in Real-Time [Video]

Students from the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg, Max-Planck-Institute for Informatics, and Stanford University have been working on a project to manipulate videos in real-time. They have demonstrated their results now in a YouTube video, using a variety of prominent individuals as example.

From a scientific point of view, the manipulation of video data, based on motion capturing in real-time is very interesting. From another angle this leads to video content becoming invalid as proof and reference, similar to what Photoshop has caused to digital images. While there might be values of this technology in entertainment, the manipulation of video footage or broadcasting video like this is rather unethical.
