The Day Mr. Computer Fell Out Of Its Tree

April 5, 2007

Is it real or is it Memorex?Can’t be bothered going in to school? Bought a new book you want to read? Decided to have a duvet-day? Then what you need is a super realistic avatar…

Courtesy of Roland Piquepaille at ZDNet comes this wonderful tale of the new face of online learning. The linking of realistic avatars with highly developed AI means that your avatar can take a class for you… well, maybe not yet, but it’s surely just a matter of time. The picture on the right will give you an idea of just how realistic these avatars are, but we’ll need to wait a bit longer to see them in action… I wonder if we can get this incorporated in GLOW? Anyway, I’ll be alright as long as you can fit a pair of cheap sunglasses to mine!
