The Mitsui-Toshiba Pavilion at the World Expo 2005 in Aichi, Japan will feature a Futurecast system.
The Futurecast System scans visitors’ faces and heads within seconds to turn them into CG characters in the sci-fi feature “GRAND ODYSSEY”. (see image of process below)
Grand Odyssey, using full computer graphic images, is a depiction of the future of the Earth and space.
This is a quite cool system. To put your face on avatars in multiplayer games or virtual 3D chat-rooms is already common. To appear on virtual actors in a movie, when watching it is new as far as I know. Maybe I should go to the World Expo 2005 in Aichi...
