I’m sure we all have, to one extent or another, seem animated 3D characters. However, I’m sure you have yet to see an animated character that looks real. You know, like a real person. Until now.

In pursuit of “next generation character rendering”, Activision Blizzard’s research and development team have developed animations of people that look extremely real. In fact, you may not even know they are animated if I didn’t tell you (save for the teeth — the teeth still need work). Are you ready to be amazed? Hit up the following video and images:

    The images look very real, indeed. But, the eyes are the giveaway. They look dead. The eyes are the only part of the human body which are alive, as the life force shines through the eyes. This light of life cannot be reproduced in art, except by a master like Leonardo da Vinci.

    If you look at the eyes carefully in the above computer-generated images, you will see that they show an empty vessel. It couldn’t be any other way.

    Facial muscles look good but the eyes are still soulless. I’ve seen the same look in a friend with schizophrenia and on big time antipsychotics.
