I use a technique similar to the standard policeman's "identi-kit"
in my game.  It is a predominantly static image, whereas their
system's primary focus seems to be animating the resulting picture
in a realistic manner.  I've prototyped a wink and a grin to test
out some simple animation.  It works very well.

Were you proposing something along these lines, or a fully featured
facial muscle Digimask clone, or perhaps that we should all
standardise on the Digimask technology itself?
