I dunno; I suspect it is a human and this is a little test.  At any rate except for the teeth (that look like implants but lots of real people have them) I doubt anyone would question it if they didn't know in advance.
Interesting thought. It could be a human actor, pretending to be a computer animation. A good test of truly successful emulations of a human being would be to to mix up a series of human-like animations, and videos of real real humans, and have people try to tell which was which. As long as the humans were acting naturally and normally, I sense that it would still be possible for at least some persons to distinguish the best current emulations from the real humans.

Very impressive!
I guess a point-in-time will be where we have even less faith in the validity of Bigfoot or ET UFO/alien vids.
I wouldnt have any faith in UFO alien vids even right now. They're so easy to make an idiot can make them, and most of them are made the same way.

The talking was out of sync and seemed fake, but the texture and lighting is pretty much indistinguishable from the real thing. Amazing!

Y'all ever see the movie "LOOKER" from about 1981? I think it was written by Michael Criton, and it was about a plot to kill off super models when it becomes possible to computer generate their images for free. We are actually almost in those times. To think that we may see band new movies with Marilyn Monroe or John Wayne in our lifetimes.

Impressive. With the matrix overlay, it appears they are mapping most of the facial muscles to obtain the desired results. As computers become more powerful, one could imagine that creative producers will be able to extract both voice and visual components from classic actors to create new venues or even create an fully animated versions of classic written works.

They should focus less on graphics and more on fixing bugs and glitches.

Incredible! I agree the mouth doesn't look right when open; looks to black void like.  Just imagine al the hoaxes in the future.  Political opponents destroyed for being with "ladies of the evening".... see I have video to prove it!

It's cool but video games are years away from this.
Maybe the ps5 can do it.
