  • Fancy a dancing partner in 3D? Characters in the demostration will mimic a dancer's moves and even make eye contact and blink. No two dances are the same as the character will sync its moves to not only the real person but also to the rhythm and beat of the music.

    The booth includes a computer running the game engine, motion-detectors and a projector. The game is also available in 2D, an A*Star representative said.
