Recent Developments

  • In March 2023, X-Avatar a research team from ETH Zurich and Microsoft created an expressive implicit human avatar model that properly reproduces the human body and hand motions, expressions, and other physical traits. The two inputs that X-Avatar can process are 3D posed scans and RGB-D images. The variable topology of clothed humans is captured by a human model characterized by articulated neural implicit surfaces. Simultaneously, a unique part-aware initialization strategy significantly improves output quality by increasing the sampling rate for smaller body sections.


  • In November 2022, Ogilvy announced the launch of Reality, a "lab" for digital experiences tasked with investigating and creating fresh applications for innovations like AR, VR, and NFT.
