Scientists Mimic a Camera with Ear-Based Sonar to Image a Human Face

Traditionally, camera-based technology has been used to track facial movements in real-time. But now, researchers at Cornell University have developed a wearable earphone device -- or "earable" -- that bounces sound off of a human's cheeks and transforms the echoes into an avatar of that person’s entire moving face.
