Someone in France managed to apply for an identification card by submitting a 3D model of his face instead of a traditional photo. Isn’t this technically illegal? Apparently, the uncanny valley does not apply to everybody. The photo I submitted for this request is actually a 3D model created on a computer, by means of several different software and techniques used for special effects in movies and in the video game industry. It is a digital image, where the body is absent, the result of an artificial process. The image corresponds to the official demands for an ID: it is resembling, is recent, and answers all the criteria of framing, light, bottom, and contrasts to be observed.
