"Milo" Technical



Remember Milo? I do. He was showcased when "Kinect" (formerly known as Project Natal) was first announced by Peter Molyneux. Well, I thought this aspect of Natal was much more impressive than anything else I saw out of Kinect. Anyways, this is a technical view of how they handled the motion capture end of it. I thought it was really cool.

Check it out.

I always wondered what happened with this. Cool to see how they handled the motion capture. This is such impressive technology. I'm excited to see it implemented in games one day.

wow this is unbelievable, how did I know know about this? I HAVE to find out more about this.

The only problem is it has to be constricted by the programming/scripting/voice acting. This still makes me exciting to think about the future possibilities. To think how far we've come in even ten years, you know?

Milo was great as a tech demo, but I think the whole "interact with voice" thing was taken way too far. I smelled bullshit the instant peter was on camera haha.
