Yes, as has been noted at least once (I`m only patient enough to read the first page of comments), the video was extremely quiet. Too much of a hassle to watch, even on full volume.

There is another company out there currently on this same path. Although their technology takes much less computing power to create the same effect. The reason my money is on this company is because it could be used in consoles and gaming computers. More real world applications that consumers can have now, and not need to wait until computers get more processing power.

Fantastic! I`ll bet the Sims 3 game (coming in 2009) will feature that

oh my God this is going to be amazing when it comes out on games. I knew that someday the art would get too good that youll just have to start using real people and this might be it kind of.

Protgod - "Avatar" is out next year, he said it was a film out later THIS year.

"Halo" seems like a long shot - it`s questionable when or if it will ever be finished, and you can`t see Master Cheif`s face anyway.

Any other guesses? I`m hoping it`s Star Trek, with the original cast digitally recreated... but once again, that`s a 2009 release.

Frank Thomas is an a-hole. I can`t deny that he is one of the best hitters of all-time, though.

maybe it`ll make cool video games...

as far as movies go...I never understood the whole "we`re making a completely CG movie, and it`s gonna look like real people". JUST USE REAL PEOPLE!!!Not that the completely CG movies are bad...but photorealism is what makes those movies good.

Ah, who cares...that technology is cool...you already couldn`t trust anything you see...this makes it worse.

"Why do people type quite instead of quiet so often. You`d think more people would catch it."

Anyway, this looks awesome, and I can`t wait until it sees real use in video games, but hopefully it won`t be too exaggerated, because that can ruin the moment as much as no expression.

That would be one hell of a fun toy.
But being me, I`d be bored with it after a day.
Still, pretty cool. I`d buy it if it were for sale.

Raugh!

Jason Giambi is not a star. He is a juicer, and thus does not deserve the title of star. Frank Thomas is a star.

that was kind of creepy. But maybe it means better video game + movie graphics in the future?

Finally! It ruins a game when there`s a character talking, and he or she looks like an idiot due to their (lack of) facial expressions/lip movements..
