Virtual Interactions as Authentic
as Our Physical Ones

Virtual Interactions as Authentic
as Our Physical Ones

In a world increasingly intermediated by technology, our mission is to bring the richness of human communication to every online interaction.

Perceiving individual faces is a core facet of human connection and communication: our facial expressions change continuously as we speak and show emotion, sending vital non-verbal cues.

Creating an accurate representation of the human face is complex. Designing a consistent way to map the face and its movements across a range of human faces is an even bigger challenge.

We’ve created a high-idelity, fast, and easy way to do just that, bringing to life four of the core human attributes: visual appearance and animation, behaviour, emotion, and voice.

Anyone can have a lifelike digital version of themselves to use as their interface with technologies of all sorts. They can experience a new level of ownership and responsibility of their online identity. They can go beyond physical realities, expressing their true selves and experiencing things they wouldn’t otherwise be able to.

Didimo is led by founder and CEO Verónica Orvalho, whose groundbreaking research in computer graphics uncovered a new way to interact virtually, instilling trust and empathy in digital communication.

We are a team of software engineers, computer graphics veterans, and tech entrepreneurs. We’ve been fortunate to have directed some of the world’s leading academic labs pushing the boundaries of algorithm driven character modelling, authored award-winning SIGGRAPH papers, and collaborated with some of the world’s most talented teams in both academia and the technology ecosystem.
