Japanese Pop Star Outed As Computer-Generated Creation

20110619_eguchi2-600x449Has CGI technology become super realistic? Or is it more that actual famous people now resemble virtual creations to the extent that the difference is hardly noticeable? Kotaku reveals:

AKB48 is Japan’s most popular female pop group. With give-or-take 48 members, its latest member is Aimi Eguchi, who has rocketed from obscurity to become the poster girl for a Japanese ice candy, Ice no Mi. Now revealed as a computer composite of other girls in the group, she appears 4 seconds in below.

    That’s pretty crazy but the next step will be real life droids walking around looking like that (hopefully that good looking).  Question is are you willing to take one home at 3:00 a.m. when you’re drunk and horny?  Because I sure am!

      But the droids will not be free…oh no

    Well, if it’s a composite of four other girls then it’s not entirely virtual.

    For me the tip off was the fact that at no time did she screech:  “You fekkin’ cromagnon!  Even a goddamned animal would demand fresh woodchips in the cage from time to time to ward off the stench!”

    Yeah.  Excessive perfection:  Phillip K. Dick’s first rule for identifying a replicant.

    Umm, yes I suppose. I’m not sure precisely what I’m looking at on this one. Just a candy commercial? Maybe better than some of the “tough active people” Snickers commercials I’ve seen. I’ve seen worse things.
