Creating a Virtual Recording Artist

While I was navigating through Ray Kurzweil’s website I found an interesting article about “The Virtual Ramona Project”.  This project consisted of Ray creating a virtual recording artist’s avatar.  The fascinating thing about this whole project was the process of creating it.  They used motion capture for creating the dance moves, they extracted actual speech sounds to control her lips and facial expressions and they used point clouds to generate the 3D model.
