    Heavy Rain creator's "Kara" tech demo - YouTube

    I almost cried, this was the most touching android story ever shown to me.



    1. during her intro speech test she said some truth in the way Androids of her type would be used in real life should we reach that level of tech (highly unlikely)

    2. I really love the animation, the Actress did a really good job of showing emotions, as did the Animators of capturing her emotions.

    3. I really hope Androids don't become this lifelike for this exact reason.

    This theory has already been delved into on ST:TNG The Measure of a Man and also the Robin Williams Bicentennial Man. Could also be argued with RoboCop and Soldier as humans are used as tools too.

    Pretty neat and often times very dark to delve into the possibilities as the potential for enslavement is all too real.

    This was released waaaaaay back in April I think.

    So stoked that the studio's using that technology for BEYOND: Two Souls.

    For what? The motion capture stuff to be used in video games or for actual androids? Cause if this is just a demo of how real they can make video games I'd rather they do it with, you know, actually playable video games.

    I think just the exact opposite. Whether it be a mechanical construct or a biological one (say a clone), humans will be faced with this problem one day. And they will be that lifelike, that's the problem.

    It won't be in our lifetimes, but I think some future group of people will be faced with deciding things like rights, freedoms, civil liberties, etc. for a race of artificial lifeforms.
