Embody Digital’s 3D technologies allow for the creation of digital avatars for communication and commerce, including games, virtual try-on, virtual reality, social media, AI, bots and natural language interfaces.

Automatic animation from text or voice

Automatically transforms text- or speech- based AI into a fully embodied conversation for embodied personal assistants, customer service agents, data collection or entertainment. Our patented algorithm allows any line of conversation to be automatically animated with emotion and expression.

An example of this used for customer service or for interactive chat.

Automatic rigging and reshaping

Automatically rig and body scan generated from a body scanner so that it can be used in a 3D virtual environment. Automatically add articulated hands and fingers to the body scan so that the 3D character can communicate and express more effectively.

See details of the Autorigger and Reshaper here.

Automatic lip sync to speech

Turn speech or text into accurate visual speech/lip syncing.

Automatic generation of blendshapes from 3D facial scans

Automatically generate blendshapes from a set of 3D facial scans. Blendshapes allow you to animate the 3D face and use it in a virtual environment.

A quote from Judge Andy Kelm:

“We found that Embody Digital stood out among a very competitive group of technology-oriented entrants. Not only is the Embody technology novel and innovative, but we also found it to be extremely timely given the significant interest and investment going into AR and VR. We see a wide range of commercial options from skins & emotes in gaming platforms to B2B opportunities like Amazon Sumerian, and we look forward to seeing what the Embody Digital team does next.”
