Creepy Digital Animation

Pink Tentacle points to the Japanese Mortion Portrait web site, featuring software that can take a digital photograph and convert it into an animated, interactive 3D representation.

Among the examples linked is one of a dog, which I agree with PT, is somewhat creepy. It’s the human examples, though, including the interactive on one the main page that leads me to wonder how far we can take this particular art.

Perhaps news organizations will hire a ‘face’, and then just program it to talk.

And just think: every Barcamp can have its very own SillyValley A-Lister. No one could tell the difference.

    The problem here has always been that people are cheaper than computer graphics.

    That may change in the near future!
