I work in the acting industry. The plasticity is there in many of the humans as well. Botox also enters into the equation.

The work the animators have done is exceptional!

Very cool, as a artist i try to keep up with this stuff. Awesome stuff. Now if they could digitally print out a human. we could pick our mates looks.

Lmao first of all,this techonology will never be used for porn...anyone who thinks so isn't using their head. Think about it,why would porn movie producers pay potentially millions to make a animated realistic movie with powerful computers when they can just pay a cumbucket and mr woody a few grand...

Still in uncanny valley, she looks like she's had a stroke and computer animated

I wanted to bring everyone's attention to this it's called eon Human and it's a web program that will render a 3D reconstruction of your face to near perfection. It's actually quite fun however, following alarmist trend I wondered if this wasn't the most perfect way for the CIA to obtain 3D data of our faces for future big brother tech use. Kinda like giving poisoned candy to a baby don't you think? Maybe that's just me being paranoid but I sure fell for the trap if it is that nefarious.

Using this technology they can do that already with CCTVs. More so in Britain than anywhere else, but facial dimensions aren't completely unique, there is a significant margin for error.

Yes indeed, You can still tell that is not a real person, at least to me. Like around the lips with her teeth. But it may be that I already knew that she wasn't real, so I was looking for the mistakes. I did see those very little mistakes right away, but I'm good at that, I mean, I can tell the difference between identical twins, even if they are dressed alike, same hair style and everything. It's something about the skin that I can tell the difference.

But this is really, really good and bad at the same time. A member already mentioned it: With this technological advancement we cannot trust anything out there any more.

I read about this on a book, where a military person(from the USA) was in shocked when they showed him a video of himself talking against his country, talking about treason.
He said it wasn't him but the evidence was there. Then they proceeded to tell him that it was just an animation with his face and voice, and they could make appear that anyone have said anything they wanted to. Really scary. And this is only the technology they show us; usually when they talk about a technology being developed, it's because it has been perfected about 10-15 years ago.

So, is that the real Bin Laden? Is there a Bin Laden? Is he himself saying all those things that they show us in the news?

Another thing that comes to mind. For reason of national security. When they have a case in court they don't televise it (like Saddam Hussein's), is it because there are things that we are not supposed to know? This is a rhetoric question.

PS. Now they can use real puppets to tell us the news on TV!

Not quite there yet though, which would be alot more obvious in a higher quality video.

But check out their website :

Thanks and for the link. The clip that is on there web site is VERY REAL looking. that's amazing to watch the real girl in the corner with the fake one at the same time.
That's makes any and all video on aliens and reptilians obsolete. You Tube is worthless now. Nobody will believe, even if it is real.
Good and bad in everything....huh?

Pretty cool thanks for the link. I bet movie companies are going nuts trying to come up with the first actor they don't have to pay or have PR problems with. Amazing stuff. Think of what is SECRET if we know about this

I thought the actual Emily video was pretty clearly CGI...there were definitely unnatural things going on. But I can see how that that is going to be remarkable in the next couple years. I can't imagine what horrors will be perpetrated using such tech in the near future.

NOTHING I like better than to see all those overpaid people in Hollywood whom are good at one thing: Pretending.

Start shaking in there boots.

I can see it now:

Inside George Lucase's office....

Brad Pitt is negotiating for an upcoming role in the next big blockbuster hit...

Brad wants 20 million.

Steve, a representative from Industrial Light and Magic says they can CGI the actor for $45,000 including everything and they don't have to carry liability insurance.

Sorry Brad...I hear Jiffy Lube is hiring.

This will be used in advertising, I think, and will make them entirely able to piggyback messages into the subconscious.

We are completely screwed.

Next the government will have to monitor all studios where this is produced... Just think the fun people will have with bush and bill and monica..... eh hem.

That said. I dont think its right what people can and will do with this technology. What good people will do with it will be amazing.

My favorite model is Angelina Jolie... and I thought the beowulf movie was awesome!!!

I would deffinately model myself out for a computer generated writer but id have to approve the script.

I agree too though. Its about time only the Movie Writers and their designers get paid. These actors and actresses are ruining the world. All of these little girls wanting to be lohan and that other beautiful nutcase...not to mention brittany spears but shes a singer
I do wish them all of luck though. They are human... we all deserve a chance at a good life.

You're right. If the government had this technology already, the 7/7 London culprits would have been seen in the footage, rather than still shots of them. The potential for abuse is there. A slightly more complex system down the line could replace a criminals face in a surveillance video with someone they want to frame for the crime.

There probably are not really that many uses for the technology itself, except for entertainment.

Obviously very cool.

I wonder what the, ahem, "adult" applications of this technology are... (mind in the gutter).

I think this is the "next level" but personally I think the last word will be truly convincing virtual reality. We haven't even begun to explore the potentials of far everything is on a flat screen in front of us. The real revolution will be when it takes place in our HEADS...not like wearing goggles projecting a reality at us but actually experienced in 360-degree, 5-senses glistening reality inside out heads, as vivid as a lucid dream. Mediated through electrodes or something similar.

We are some years off from that...but maybe not as far as you think.

reply to post by silent thunder

Silent that is an amazing point. I dont think that is too far away in reality either.

I do fear that would be worse though. The mind is a very powerful device... If we are living that world in our heads... what will happen to our body? Can it handle it?

I wouldnt mind seeing a HD version though, Thats awsome. Although i think the only thing animated is the actual face & not the whole scene (i could be wrong). But even so its pretty damn good

[edit on 8/18/2008 by Matt.Trakker]

Yes! they have cheated a bit, in the high quality version you can see the differance of the face compared to the rest of the scene and body. the face has a sort of blurglow

Damn my Daddy always told me to "Believe half of what you see and none of what you hear". Thats pretty cool, but it still has flaws, but the future should be pretty cool. Let's hope it won't be like The Matrix though.

It's a good 'leap' but for a trained eye (I've been working in image compositing for more than 4 years professionally) like mine, it is still very obvious that it is CGI...

So was that really a tape of Osama Bin Ladin telling us about future terrorist attacks?

Yeah like the Govt. wouldn't use that againt us (for thier own agenda)
