Facial capture at its best

Rockstar games have always been famous for developing expansive environments, buildings and great 3D graphics in their Grand theft auto series. Even in other games, 3D graphics was always taken up a notch, like, Crysis and Assassin’s creed are stellar examples. But facial capture for expressing emotions is always a dud when it comes to immersive story driven games ( take the Mafia series for example ). But an amazing company called Depth Analysis based in Australia have developed a facial capture technology called MotionScan. It captures the entire head , even the hairstyle and replicates the face in a 3D mesh in high resolution. This is Facial capture’s future.
Rockstar is using this technology in it’s upcoming game called L.A.Noire(releasing for Xbox360 and PS3) which is set in the 1950s based on a detective genre. Rockstar aims to use it extensively to let gamers get the facial expressions and find out if they are lying or not( since you are a detective in the game ). Hard to believe how it ll work ? Have a look at the stunning video after the break.
