This is the story of the Animojis of the iPhone X



One of the most representative functions of the iPhone X, in addition to its screen with OLED technology, is the TrueDepth camera system . It has one of the most advanced technologies in the smartphone industry and does not only serve to operate Face ID , but for many other functions.

For example, one of the uses that has been given in iOS 11 to the facial recognition function of the TrueDepth system is the sending and receiving of Animojis with the iPhone X. As its name implies, the Animojis are animated emojis that They are based on the facial expressions of the users.

Although the implementation of Apple's new Animojis on the iPhone X is not a big innovation, the technology behind this functionality is quite interesting and is integrated into Apple's software slowly thanks to the acquisition of different companies throughout of the last years.

The Animojis have more than 10 years of development

Apparently, Apple's Animojis have been developing for many years. From Wired have detailed how the technology responsible for the Animojis are present in the iPhone X has been traced for some years ...

"IF YOU TRACE MOST OF THE MOST IMPRESSIVE TECHNOLOGY ACHIEVEMENTS OF CONSUMERS BACK TO THEIR ORIGINS, IT WILL LEAD YOU TO A LABORATORY RESEARCH OF GRADUATE STUDENTS. IN THE CASE OF APPLE'S ANIMOJIS, THIS RESEARCH APPEARS TO HAVE TAKEN PLACE IN ONE OF THE MOST PRESTIGIOUS SCHOOLS IN EUROPE, A DECADE AGO. "


Most of the development of the Animojis was carried out by Mark Pauly, co-founder of Faceshift , a company that Apple acquired in 2015.

That's right, the Animojis have been in full development for 10 years. And yes, they were invented in Europe . The only thing that Apple had to do is acquire the right company, polish the technology and give it a name. What you usually do always, go.
