French researchers have developed a new system to enable users to insert virtual copies of themselves into video games or on the Web. This system combines high performance video acquisition, computation and graphics rendering. It was introduced last week at SIGGRAPH 2007. This system is called GrImage (for 'grid' and 'image') -- a French word which also means 'make-up' for actors -- a pretty bad choice in my opinion. Anyway, it could be used to control your realistic avatars not only in games, but also in video conferences. But read more...
