Chatterbox DVD – digital cartoon characters get some prime time face to face

Chatterbox

Chatterbox DVD. Take one green screen booth, throw in a hidden live motion capture operator, add in some swish special effects and you’ve got a new amusement facility which aims to offer a unique experience for young and old alike. The idea is for the operator to make the virtual characters interact in real time with the visitors, who can then take away a DVD of the virtual encounter to enjoy at home. The digital characters look a little cheesy in the video, but maybe that’s just our cynicism showing through. [via The Stinger Report]

 ChatterBox-DVD is AnimaLive’s top of the range preconfigured interactive booth system. It involves and dazzles your customers as they chat live with an onscreen cartoon character of your choice…Extremely easy to run, the character can be controlled entirely by one operator! Behind the scenes state of the art equipment – a combination of award winning motion capture and 3D animation technologies – power the system.
