Well we sure have come a long way from Pong.
Unreal Unveils Tool For Anybody To Make Realistic Digital Humans

MetaHuman Creator is a new tool being released by Unreal that allows anybody to create their own remarkably realistic looking digital humans “in a matter of minutes.” Obviously, I’m going to make a digital clone of myself, but with a penis I’m not constantly tripping over.

Bringing compelling real-time digital humans to life is incredibly challenging and time-consuming. It can take months of research, costly scanning equipment, and an army of tech artists. What if we could make the process radically simpler, faster, and more scalable—without compromising on quality?

We’re excited to share a sneak peek at MetaHuman Creator, a new tool that will empower anyone to create a bespoke photorealistic digital human, fully rigged and complete with hair and clothing, in a matter of minutes.

The videos are pretty impressive, although the eyes and mouths still need some work before I’d mistake any of these ePeople for an actual human. Still, we’re getting there. Unfortunately we won’t get there fast enough, because the world is ending on August 12th. “Isn’t that your birthday?” Oh is it? *caressing clear box covering big red button* What a crazy coincidence.
