    Hmmm, not even close! A lot of this has to do with imperfections. No person has skin that taut or unblemished. I KNOW they can do better texturing than this. The facial expressions were good, though.

    OMG. This could have been a cut scene from one of her movies! It’s perfect! After I picked my jaw up off the floor, my first thought was “I’ll buy two cases!” The uncanny valley? Nope. Not there. The FPS rate was mimicked at 24 instead of 30 or 60. The graininess covers any (well, most) imperfections. Very smart. Audrey Hepburn’s estate could easily authorize entire new movies starring her! Now THAT’s the scary part about the uncanny valley!

    The first thing I thought of … in a few years they can make more seasons of the original Star Trek with virtual actors. Yes!!

    Also, there are a lot of books I would like to see turned into movies or TV shows. The future is bright for couch potatoes.

      I was thinking much the same thing (but with Doctor Who and Harry Potter).
      Of course, what this is missing is the voice. I don’t think they can computer generate an accurate vocal likeness as yet, can they?

        I wouldn’t bet against it. If old movies and TV shows can be digitized I see no reason why the voices couldn’t be computer generated or a voice actor could voice the words and a computer could modify the sound so it matches the voice characteristics of the original actor.

        Of course you could also use a gifted human mimic (the job of the future until they to are replaced by computers). Is there anyone on this web site that doesn’t have their own William Shatner impression?
