#Goodnews – Finally you Can ZOOM As Potato
Why not get an avatar to do the conference while you are in the bathroom
Art Stuff 05 May 2020
You may have read by now about this boss who accidentally turned herself into a potato for the duration of her Microsoft Teams video conference? Legendary. If you haven’t yet, a simple search for #PotatoBoss will show you hundreds of results…



If you are tired of seeing yourself all day on the screen with fancy top and pyjama bottom, why don’t turn into an avatar, tiger etc yourself during your next conference?
 
This week,Loom.ai, a tech company that builds and animates 3D avatars, launchedLoomieLive, a free platform that lets users create personalized lip-synced avatars to be used on any video conferencing service. 
How does it work? While you are talking, your avatar lip-syncs in real time and looks directly into the camera on the call – even when you don’t. Got us? This means, you can get out of your chair to stretch, take a loo or change your toddlers nappy — all while your avatar appears engaged in conversation, speaking your exact words.

 
Try it now- thank us later.
