Dome vistors to be shot into cyberspace

3D rendering technology will put users into virtual world

Visitors to the Millennium Dome will have the option to have themselves shot into cyberspace after having their body digitised by three-dimensional rendering equipment.

The Talk Zone of the dome, which is being sponsored by BT, will feature a number of booths in which visitors will be able to have an "avatar" image of themselves created. They will then be presented with a card containing a personal identifier and be able to download their personal 3D image from a specially created Web site to be located at after the Dome opens.

Avatar rendering software has used to generate a great deal of the special effects for films and computer games, but this is the first time the technology has been made available to the public.
