The $999 iPhone X costs more than many laptops. Among the changes in store is the ability to project face movements onto emoji.

Apple's new iPhone X will allow users to do something we never dared dream would be possible with a handheld device.

It lets you take control of the poo emoji with your own face.

That's right, the animated pile of excrement, which is among the most popular methods of communication for millennials, can be controlled with the tech giant's new Face ID feature.

The fine article has an example of animoji demonstrated at an Apple conference.

Check YouTube for an example of the Face2Face algorithm — published on Mar 17, 2016 — where real-time face movement is projected onto George W. Bush, Vladimir Putin, and Donald Trump.

    But will it automatically pick the emojis of color to match my skin tone []?

      Doesn't look like they majored in much of anything. White people using "default" emoji is basically the definition of white privilege. No need to talk about "shame". Not that the idea is particularly well supported by the guy's own charts.

      Besides, you ought to know better. The Atlantic is the liberal media they warned you about.

      If there isn't at least one reference or primary source, it's not +1 Informative. Maybe the underused +1 Interesting?
