Who Needs Humans When You Have Emily?
Hollywood-based Image Metrics which has done special effects and animation for several Harry Potter Films and Grand Theft Auto released a demo illustrating the realistic quality of their animation technology. The person in this video from the company is not a real person. Her face is an animation.
It's very lifelike. And who needs a whining, demanding actor when you can just program one instead? Everyone says geeks will inherit the earth. With this technology, it seems they just might. Right from their keyboards.
The technology's true test and vetting will, of course...like everything else, come from the porn industry. Boobs not big enough? Push a button. Penis not properly elongated for that crucial scene? Push a button. Orgasmic facial expression representative of pinching a loaf instead of blissful pleasure? Push a button.
If society isn't already obsessed with perfection, this technology may cause anything remotely less than perfect to be dubbed absolutely unacceptable.
