Hype Forget Ray Tracing, this is what next gen should look like.

This mad lad is only using an iPhone to control a semi-realistic girl in real time.

Imagine the game possibilities when anyone can control an avatar like this.

You mean next-generation should look like something that really doesn't look like much better (if any) that Death Stranding on PS4?

Guess you're shooting low. :messenger_smirking:

PS: This kind of feature is already implemented in Star Citizen.

Interesting.

That makes my mind run wild. Just imagine having a game that uses this kind of interface, and VR at the same time. Crazy.

Best thing about this tech, there is no uncanny valley.

Usually when I see photoreal humans animate more humanly, I get a sense of disgust. But not here.

The eyes actually feel alive instead of just giving off that "blank" stare that is common with CG characters.

This is probably a pretty good indicator of what next-gen games will look like, as far as facial animation goes.
Some games will look better; some will look worse, but this is probably a pretty good estimate of the average game throughout the coming generation.

As far as ray-tracing goes, though, this isn't even remotely close to what's to come.
