Nvidia this week presented its view of the future of the Metaverse at Siggraph. As expected, it was a multimedia showcase where each set of visuals reinforced the points various speakers were making. Much of the presentation focused on avatars and how Nvidia’s tools, by emulating facial muscles, could translate what might have been wooden performances by those avatars into a variety of visible emotions.
The end result was both more realistic and interesting. (I touched on this last week previewing Nvidia’s plans.)
