A cool new 3D animation technique is so simple and easy to master that even a non-experienced user is able to animate their own image, upload it and use it in a game.

The process requires a simple body scan and within minutes users can get in the game with an animated version of themselves portrayed on screen.

Implications - Using this 3D technique developed in Germany could provide new opportunities in the acting industry. It claims that it will take the "hard work" out of acting because of the high-resolution 3D scans. This could definitely be something used in the future of movie-making for time efficiency and cool effects. It also looks like the beginning stages of new gaming technology.
