LoomieLive reduces video conference fatigue, improves background privacy, adds personalization for individuals, and allows teams to have shared 3D themes. Create your free avatar using a selfie then plug it into your favourite video chat app. Control your character and environment during video calls.
Loom.ai has introduced new facial tracking and AR capabilities to its LoomieLive desktop app. These bring personalized talking avatars and 3D environments for Zoom, Google Meet and other popular video conferencing services. The new LoomieLive Pro version offers the privacy of voice with the presence of video.
To create your own LoomieLive avatar, you first need to download the Loomie app on either iOS or Android. The app will immediately create an avatar based on your selfie, which you can further personalize like you would a Memoji, from hair to accessories to makeup. From here, download the desktop LoomieLive camera (and sign in using your Loomie login), where you’ll see the avatar you created and can test it using 16 office, sci-fi, and nature-themed backgrounds available on the platform.
I have used LoomieLive avatars in my lessons with Primary School children. I have access to two LoomieLive avatars I created; one is m a smart version of me wearing a suit and the other is a cowboy! Once you open the camera, you will find other standard avatars such as a woman, a Doraemon character, a monkey, a lego man, and a lego woman, etc. My children really liked it when I used the Doraemon avatar.
With LoomieLive’s 3D avatars, video callers’ on-screen persona responds in real-time from their voice, automatically triggering body gestures, including laughter, by analyzing the user’s voice. In addition, users can manually trigger reactions – such as thumbs up, waves, and celebrations – to provide additional emotions. LoomieLive also offers a variety of 3D virtual backgrounds, such as office and school settings. I would firmly recommend setting up LoomieLive avatars for Primary School teachers.
