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]
