It does look promising, and yes, it does look fun (as you probably already guessed, “fun” is a big part of our work routine, but not everything’s always as fun as this mind you!).
Ok I know what you’re about to say, “dude you’re kicking a poor dog :/ ” WELL, first of all, it’s a coyote not a dog – despite what the title of the post says. Second, come on it’s just a demo, no real coyotes (or dogs) were hurt in the making of this demo, I promise.
By now, the system can recognize 2 avatars without problems, and they can interact between each other (material for another video wink wink) and interact with stuff on the background, like our poor coyote. The second guy in the demo is actually a zombie because we felt like adding some spice to the whole thing.
I’ll leave it to you to imagine practical uses for this, even though I’ll be sure to provide ample examples when all this will get a lot more tuned and finalized.
