A new level of realism has been attained for Computer graphics. It looks like they FINALLY got the eyes right!
Awesome job guys over at Image Metrics. This is Emily, which is significantly more impressive than any video I've seen, even from their website. I'm convinced that in my lifetime these will be standard in every digital experience, and even perhaps change how work occurs. What if its easier bandwidth wise to do this: 1. Video my face in standard lighting with HD. Then 2. Send just the coordinates of change over the pipe. The screen renders in realtime. Way easier than piping HD video over the Net. AND my appearance would be consistent without me doing any real work on it :)
