Viral Video: Finally, “Kara” Becomes a Cyborg (Bucket List, Check!)
Here is a very cool — if slightly creepy — video that debuted at the Game Developers Conference this week in San Francisco.
Made by the Paris-based Quantic Dream, developers of the groundbreaking Heavy Rain game, the “Kara” concept video is a look at the future of gaming, using full-body motion capture and a new computer-graphics engine. It is running in real time on Sony’s PlayStation 3 platform.
Mostly, it is just heartbreaking, as a robot comes to life and is quickly scared by the idea of how precious that can be.
