I agree that the wheels of research to market turn slowly. Rest assured that we are committed to making these tools available to everyone. In the fall of 2014, we plan to release an iPad app that allows the user to build faces of people from their everyday lives using the built-in camera and video functions.

Very cool crossroads of computer technology and medicine.  Have you done any studies on effectiveness of the games and generalization to real-world interactions?  It would be exciting to follow the progress of kids who have used the games.

I loved the models' happy reaction in seeing their bodies made into mannequins.  People can learn to see us as we without trying to change what cannot be changed.   Good lesson.  Thanks, Jim

It was alot of fun getting whacked by waves at Mystic.  Simen, Buyun and I are actually going to Tofino tomorrow to celebrate the end of summer, drink beer and eat fish tacos.  Wish you were here to show us the secret surf spots.
