The task is a "tongue joystick" that deserve to be provided by hair character performers to speak in real time. If I"m not fairly sure if this has been posted, I thought it can be interesting to discuss. V that said, walk anyone understand if this is the an innovation that they use for talking head Mickey or have actually they developed something else that is better than this?

This seems choose it might be the price to exactly how the canned response Mickey worked. However, the dynamic responses making use of names indicate something different. I personally don"t think it"s voice modulation. Modern technology hasn"t gotten far sufficient along yet to perfect emulate all the nuances the one specific voice that is extremely recognizable.

I agree the modulation technology hasn"t progressed to the allude that disney would certainly feel comfortable putting it in the characters. However, once looking with the videos virtual of talking mickey, it appears that they use the tongue joystiq sometimes(http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=endscreen&NR=1&v=rVXtqPlOcIc) and also something else an ext recently(http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V1xNeyNC0rc&feature=related). So the inquiry remains, just how are lock doing it?

I to be under the impression that it was this patent that was behind the dynamically talk Mickey.As far as the personalities in Dream together with Mickey, at the very least *some* portion of your head animation is managed with sensors in the gloves of the costume. Most of the time they"ll place their hands the end of vision of the audience to hide the motion. Clock closely and also you"ll view their fingers bending in sync v their mouths/eyes.

I was just watching the demo video on the site..It looks choose an odd version of Figment through drooping ears..
the relocating heads in the stage present are definitely controlled by the performer"s hand motions. It"s very closely choreographed come pull her eyes far from it many of the time.

I wonder can it be the same kind of an innovation as what is provided with talking Crush? probably there is someone concealed somewhere in the theatre the is using voice modulation or is a Mickey voice actor that pipes it into the costume v a wireless receiver? after ~ watching a few videos what happened at WDW to be much much more spontaneous then the responses at DL.
What carry out you median technology??? that is Mickey Mouse!!! he is real so of food he will certainly talk... :lookaroun
