A new 3D motion capture technology allows users to insert oneself into a video game when the game is on.
The new 'xxArray system', developed by Alexx Henry Studios for Nikon, has a photobooth fitted with 68 cameras and creates a photographic-quality render of users, inserting the image into video games as a digital character in motion
The new system requires two quick poses of the user, followed by a couple of hours of processing time, generating a 14-million polygon render of the subject inside.
Alexx Henry Studios owner Alexx Henry told IANS: "The high resolution would future-proof the scans for quite some time, which can also be 3D printed in extremely.
After capturing the 3-D image, the output is sent to a wireframe that produces the controllable expression, enabling the character to imitate human movements such as running, jumping and breakdancing.
