    Technology Thread

    So while I don't really draw or write much anymore, I do a lot with tech. So I figure this is a thread we can post in to talk about new tech that's out there, is out but not many people know of, is coming out, or is still in it's prototype/conceptualising stages.

    This isn't limited to hardware either, software is something I class as tech.

    So to get the ball rolling, here's a link.

    It's called FaceRig, it's a webcam virtualisation program that lets you essentially become a digital character. It uses real time expression tracking and combines it with real time animation. So the expressions you pull; whether it be a happy or angry face will actually render on the character in real time. It's pretty cool and if it gets off the ground I reckon it could really revolutionise video games.

    I don't know why you guys hate on Mac so much. It's truly innovative and non intrusive. Not to mention the largest price tag. Trust me, you get what you pay for, and if I pay 5 grand for a new Apple product, it will always be better than the cheaper competition. Why can't you guys understand this? Ugh.
