Google's technology will enable users change their appearance in video calls

This week Google was granted a patent US 9,060,095. The patented technology lets you get under skin of any celebrity that you may fancy. You may now appear as Ryan Gosling (or Kate Upton if you are a girl) in all your video calls and steal the show. But it’s not just the face, you could even sound exactly like the celebrity that you wish to be.


The technology works by cleverly morphing both the video and audio stream with characteristics of the chosen celebrity. It even tracks the orientation of your head and so if you turned to your left, the right side of the celebrity’s face would appear on screen giving an amazingly realistic experience.

When this technology comes to android, you will finally be able to make all your friends’ celebrity fantasies come true!

However, the technology can also be used to fake online identity. Oops.
