Today sees the launch of Rockstar Games' latest video game L.A. Noire, which uses some fancy new tech kit called MotionScan. It's cost tens of millions of pounds and taken hundreds of people years to develop it. The system uses 32 HD cameras arranged like a birdcage around an actor to capture 3D images at 1,000 frames per second. Rockstar claims this makes characters' faces and emotions so lifelike that you can interrogate them as might a 1940s detective questioning a suspect. MotionScan will supposedly allow the video games industry to compete with movies and TV for realism. I have my doubts, but the artwork is excellent.
