Japan’s hyper-realistic CG schoolgirl moves for the first time in new video

By Casey Baseel, RocketNews24

They say that sharing a project together can help bring married couples closer together, and it makes sense. After all, whether it’s as simple as cooking dinner together or redecorating the living room, there’re plenty of positive vibes to be felt in putting your heads together and producing something that provides a sense of accomplishment.

Husband and wife Teruyuki and Yuka Ishikawa happen to be involved in a bit more ambitious of an undertaking, though. For more than a year, the pair of Tokyo-based CG modelers has been working on Saya, an amazingly lifelike CG construct of a Japanese schoolgirl. We’ve been wowed by her photos before, and now comes a video showing her in motion for the first time.

At this week's CEATEC Japan electronics trade show, exhibitor Sharp showed off its new 8K monitor, and to demonstrate its high-spec clarity, visitors to the booth can see a video of Saya as she turns and grins for the virtual camera. While some of the animation looks a bit off (her hair and clothing look oddly stiff), her muscular movement looks like the real thing, and as always the textures of her skin and hair look uncannily close to those of a living human being.

The Ishikawas have long said their eventual goal is for Saya to be the star of a movie, and while her gig at CEATEC is closer to a commercial or celebrity endorsement, it’s exciting to see her make her first steps into the world of show business.

That's actually pretty extraordinary.

It's about the same quality as some porn that's already available. Google: "上の妹 / The elder of the sisters"

Quite possibly the same company made these.

I've been in Japan way too long. I instantly assumed "hyper-realistic CG schoolgirl..." involved porno filth.

I'm actually pretty appalled that people boil down this very talented married couple's work down to porn.

Well done for propping up the misinformation that the the world already has about Japan. Well done.

It won't be long before this technology makes it into grot movies, leaving all the actors and actresses unemployed and one less business for the gangsters to operate.

I guess this is just in case there is ever a shortage of 'actresses'....???, because of the population decline...?
