Real-time reproduction of three dimensional (3D) images is realized by an experimental system built as a prototype for virtual space teleconferencing. A 3D model of each participant is constructed from a wire frame model mapped by color texture and is rendered on a 3D display. Real-time detection of facial features is achieved by visually tracking tape marks pasted to the participant’s face. Realistic facial expressions are reproduced through the use of simple motion rules applied to the tape mark tracking information.
