vTime has released a new “cross world” 3D avatar messaging app, which will enable users to send messages with Avatars based within the real world.
vTag combines face-tracking and body-tracking with augmented reality geo-messaging. This means that users can create and style bespoke avatars, then bring them to life, using their own voice, expressions and body movements.
They can then send the vTag to friends, which can be viewed in full 3D through the AR camera, or pinned to real-world locations on the 3D map for friends to discover when nearby.
vTime says that while 2D avatar apps and animated emojis have grown in popularity, a 3D full-body avatar will offer “unlimited creativity.”
