Hair Algorithm

Predicting hairstyles for future virtual reality.

Scientist Menglei Chai has created AutoHair, a hair modelling software that can re-create a hairstyle from any single image, predicting the flow and curl of a whole style from just one perspective.  The technology is currently being implemented in creating realistic gaming avatars, but future uses could include haircut-on-demand software, allowing people to perfectly recreate their favourite celebrity style from a found image.
