New Software Will Make Your Skype Chats Less Awkward

Anyone who has ever had a video chat will know that even though you can see each other's faces, you're not actually looking at each other. You're looking at the image of your contact on the screen, which makes your eye-gaze off-center. It's annoying.

A team of Swiss researchers, some facial recognition experts from the Computer Graphics Laboratory ETH in Zurich are perfecting a program that eliminates the problem by spotting the face in the frame and rotating it slightly so that the person appears to be looking directly at the camera.
The software essentially cuts the face out of the frame and adjusts it in real time so seamlessly that the person you're talking to won't even notice. This video demonstrates the software in action.
