About NICE CAMERA

“NICE CAMERA” is an innovative application that allows easy handling of avatars using remote tools with only one PC.

There’s no need for special head-mounted displays or motion capture devices. Using only your PC’s built-in webcam, it reads facial expressions, movements, and upper body actions in real time and reflects them onto the avatar.

We’ve also introduced the latest feature called “AI-Kata”. With this feature, users can enjoy natural communication with an AI avatar through voice input.

NICE CAMERA is equipped with various functions, including stamp features, making it a convenient communication tool for remote meetings. It also supports innovative controls where avatars can be freely moved using game controllers.

NICE CAMERA is not just an application for moving avatars. It proposes a new form of communication as an advanced remote meeting application, keeping in mind the future of avatar worlds. Get started with our free plan and experience the convenience and fun for yourself!
