Using RGB-D sensors, we are able to scan a face and to transfer its movements to an avatar. These sensors allow us to capture the depth of the surface. Additionally, we can also use RGB cameras to track the eye movement and transfer them to the avatar. To achieve an even higher level of detail in the virtual representation, the VR glasses also include sensors that recognize eyebrow movement.
