MIRALab, University of Geneva, Switzerland and Nanyang Technological University, Singapore.

Since 30 years, we have pioneer research on Virtual Human Modelling. From hand applications towards automatic cloning of head and body using photos and 3D scanner, we have also worked on motion retargeting for games heritage and other applications.

In this presentation, we will show the evolution of the research from past to existing projects in fashion, gaming and cultural heritage. We will also discuss what are the main avenues of research in face and body cloning and what will be the new applications to come.
