Steve Perlman, who previously co-founded WebTV and the set-top box company, Moxi, has launched another start-up. It is called Mova, and is based in Palo Alto, and here’s the Mercury News story.

Four years ago, Perlman anticipated that the last frontier for computer artists would be human faces. With a small team, he created Contour, a tool that combines the images from 44 cameras into a three-dimensional image of a person’s face that can be digitally manipulated without painstaking touch-up work. Now video game characters won’t seem so fake when game players have conversations with them.
