Insta3D, World's First 3D Selfie App, Now Available for iPhone, iPad and Android Phones

Turn Yourself into an Animated 3D Avatar in Just 10 Seconds!

TAIPEI, July 30, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Speed 3D Inc. has released its first mobile app Insta3D -- the world's first app that can turn a single photo into a person's identical and animated 3D avatar. App users can also customize their own 3D avatars with different outfits, accessories, facial expressions, and animated body motions, allowing people to express their creativity and share their animated 3D avatars on social networks.

"Insta3D uses face detection and cloud computing technology to analyze the facial features in the photo to generate a 3D head model on the cloud. The 3D model then is quickly sent back to the end-user's phone for further customization. The whole 3D modeling process takes only 10 seconds under 3G or Wi-Fi connection," said Marvin Chiu, CEO of Speed 3D.

In addition, Insta3D provides the app users hundreds of accessories, including glasses, hair styles, and outfits. The user can further enhance the avatar's personality by changing its mood -- laughing, angry, sad, or surprised, and applying different animated body languages, such us cheering, dancing, and fainting movements to the avatar. The tailored 3D avatar then can be saved and shared as photo or video to impress friends and family on social networks.

"In the future, Insta3D will regularly release new contents with more accessories and body motions through In-App purchase to our users," said Chiu, Speed 3D CEO.

The essence of data analysis involves setting up data pipelines that consist of several operations that are chained together – starting from data collection, data quality checks, data integration, data analysis and data visualization (including the setting up of interaction paths in that visualization). In our opinion, the challenges stem from the technology diversity at each stage of the data pipeline as well as the lack of process around the analysis.
