Impossible. You name a couple of parameters, but there are hundreds of them. A
head can look up/down (elevation) and left/right (azimuth). An upper arm
(shoulder joint) also has 2 degrees of freedom. A hand (including wrist) has
23(!) degrees of freedom. Combine that with features like nose size and shape,
and you end up with trillions of combinations (even if the 7 billion people on
earth are different there's still a myriad of other people possible.)
