Put Your Grandma In An MGS Game

OK,  so not everyone would put their grandmother in an MGS  game. but with this Kinect Rig you could if you wanted to. I would! She could be in some cutscenes talking to Big Boss, nagging him during dangerous missions via Codec.

Ari Shapiro of the Institute for Creative Technologies at USC thinks doing such things Is possible. He rigged a Kinect to his 3D rendering software and had an associate stand and be captured from all sides, rendering a damn near identical likeness of him. He then fused the avatars to a 3D skeleton with preprogrammed movements, and the result is a cyberspace version of himself jumping, kicking, and downward punching as if he were literally living and breathing on the screen. Check out the link below for the video. It’s as if TRON happened in real life, only without all the neon spandex.

This could very well prove to be an invaluable piece of tech over the next 5 to 10 years of this now current generation of gaming consoles. We could see realistic 3D renders of ourselves in a PS4 or XB1 game sooner than we think. And grandma can duck behind corners or cardboard boxes while snacking on a ration.
