Motion Portrait is a cool digital animation technology that allows an ordinary digital photograph of a face into a living 3D animation. It works by automatically recognizing the eyes, nose and mouth and animating these creates a whole range of emotions that can be manipulated.

Uses of Motion Portrait could be for avatars, games and advertisements (e.g. how you would look with different hairstyles). More animated demos can be found here and here.
