MYTY believes the PFP avatar is a crucial element in ushering in the web 3 social metaverse. This is why we decided to first focus on onboarding different NFT PFP (profile picture) collections to our MYTY ecosystem.
We’re very excited to announce that Pudgy Penguins is now supported on the MYTY ecosystem, including MYTY Camera! Pudgy Penguins is now a motion-tracked, metaverse-ready PFP avatar collection.
With MYTY Camera, you can animate your Pudgy Penguins through our motion-capture technology and use them as virtual filters on all the major webcam-based applications such as Google Meet, Zoom, and Discord. And it’s completely free. No subscription, no additional NFT purchase. All you need is your existing Pudgy Penguins.

Now, let’s jump right into how Pudgy Penguins will move. In the MYTY ecosystem, NFTs are animated through our motion-capture technology.
A) Facial Expression Animation
Pudgy Penguins is a still-image PFP collection with a limited range of facial expressions. For example, we open and close our eyes. Pudgy Penguins’ traits don’t include eye-blinking. So, we created them ourselves.
For the mouth, we created 6 shapes, ‘Ah’, ‘Ee’, ‘Oo’, ‘Th’, ‘M’, and ‘L’, to mimic all the primary mouth shapes we make while talking.
B) Body, Head and Face
Through MYTY Camera, Pudgy Penguins can not only express emotions but also move their body, head, and face. Let’s deep-dive into what MYTY Camera enables.
MYTY Camera controls the Pudgy Penguins’ bodies by tracking the position of the user’s chest. As the below visual illustrates, Pudgy Penguins will move left and right, reflecting the user’s movement.
Furthermore, MYTY Camera rotates the Doodle’s head based on the angle of the head viewed from the front.
Lastly, MYTY Camera track’s the user’s face orientation and lets the Doodle’s face position move accordingly.
C) Special Effects
We’re not done. We wanted to create a more dynamic and attractive Pudgy Penguins movement.
i. Glasses and Masks
Some Pudgy Penguins have eyewear such as eye patches, glasses or sunglasses. More specifically, these face traits are Squad, Star Glasses, Avitor, Circle Glasses, Clout Googles, Hero Mask Blue/Red, Villain Mask. To allow realistic animation, we immobilized the parts that needed to remain fixed with the eyewear. Look how smoothly the eyewear follows the Pudgy Penguins’ head and face movements!
ii. Physics Application
Some Pudgy Penguins are wearing adorable bear heats. More specifically, these head traits are Panda Hat and PolarBear hat. By applying gravity, we made the avatar move more dynamically when motion-tracking the users. The visual below shows the movement of the PolarBear hat strap as the Pudgy Penguins move their heads.
