Confirmed: Apple buys Swiss real-time avatar communication startup Faceshift

MacRoumers announced in September that the Swiss real-time avatar communication startup Faceshift might have been acquired by Apple. Ever want to be your avatar? To actually be in the game you’re playing, to actually interact with other characters. Faceshift made this possible and worked together with Intel on their RealSense Camera for virtual and augmented reality.

TechCrunch now confirmed that Apple has acquired Faceshift. Apple may finally give Siri a face ;-). I spent this summer two days with Thibaut in Berlin and can confirm that he is an amazing entrepreneur. Congrats to Thibaut and the Faceshift team for this move.
