Marquese Scott is a poppin'-lockin' dancer of the highest order that inspires moves for the breakaway in Jitterbug!'s climatic dance contest at the Savoy Ballroom (we ask choreographers to reach into the future for dance steps to blow the minds of the jaded Savoy regulars to win the contest). We've posted about him earlier. Now UC Berkeley has developed software that can transfer videos of one person to another person in a second video. In the demonstration above, Scott is the "Source Subject." But every dancer on video is up for grabs.
What does all of this mean? In a virtual world, everything is possible. At the touch of a button, you're a talented dancer, singer, or fighter. Muhammad Ali has nothing on you. Shed those pounds, break those records, no one has nothing on you. At least for that virtual magical moment where you can be anyone for as long as you want.
