"Not only does LifeFX offer a truly innovative infrastructure standard for lifelike communications over the Internet, but LifeFX Facemail is a first step in moving customer relationship management to the next level," said Harry Wallaesa, President and Chief Operating Officer, Safeguard Scientifics. "We are pleased to see LifeFX has successfully met its milestone to commercialize its revolutionary technology."
LifeFX Facemail is the company's first milestone in their plan to provide a face for Internet communications. In the future, they plan to license what they call Stand-In Technology to Customer Relationship Management vendors to enable personalized customer-managed relationships. The company believes human interaction has been missing in Internet communication and that LifeFX Facemail brings a new level of human interaction to online activities.
Using patented technology originally created for professional medical applications at the University of Auckland, LifeFX's life-like, interactive humans were created by combining anatomical mapping expertise from the medical community with advanced special effects from the entertainment industry.
