Mouth tracking from BinaryVR
We have been fortunate to work with so many great entrepreneurs doing amazing stuff with VR hardware, BinaryVR is one of these companies. BinaryVR develops facial expression tracking technology for virtual reality, enabling users to create a personalized 3D face from 2D facial photos to track and retarget their facial animations in real-time in any transformed CG character or avatar mode. BinaryVR have integrated their technology into High Fidelity, allowing your mouth to be tracked while in the HMD.

In our September update we showed how we are moving the upper torso and head using the HMD and hand controller. This month we continued that work and expanded it to include the knees. We are making the knees accurately bend based on the position of the hand controllers and HMD, and will be continuing to work and expect more next month.
Look out for some more exciting updates in November.
