Over three days 156 people from 6 continents gathered to have a holiday dinner together, screen to screen. From families separated to strangers meeting for the first time, we all toasted to this season of togetherness.

A little thing called facial tracking software allowed the people calling in to move their dolls by simply moving their faces. Making it as realistic as virtually possible.

It was pure joy to see and be a part of all the love.

Happy Holidays everyone!
