Eyewear shopping app turns your headshot into 3D image

As seen in this eyewear shopping app, CSIRO algorithms can develop a 3D face model using 2D pixels from an iPad camera.

The last time I picked out new eyeglasses, I spent about an hour trying out different pairs in the store. Of course I had to drive there, find and pay for parking, and get soaked in the rain.

I would have much rather used Smart Vision, an Australian technology that can create an augmented-reality 3D model of a face from a 2D image.

It can show you what you look like when trying on many different pairs of glasses or sunglasses, and you won’t even have to leave home.

Australia’s national science agency, the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO), has filed patents on the Smart Vision virtual try-on tech, which lets users see themselves from any angle.
