W+K Amsterdam's Virtual Holiday Dinner is back! Friends and family scattered across the globe? The websiteallows you to have a "dinner party" of up to five people via Skype. Guests can call into the dinner, and their faces will be shown on screens attached to dolls. The dolls are equipped with video cameras fitted with facial tracking software, so you can move around and look around simply by moving your head.

This year, the agency has added on themes -- "Business as Usual," "The Overly Friendly Christmas Dinner," or "Resolutions." The result is a holiday dinner play, with speaking cues showing up on individuals screens. W+K will provide you with a video of your performance at the end.
