its not impossible....the idea is simple. getting the idea to work is the hard part
project natal has a facial sensor,
it can sense facial expressions, probably has a program with basic default expressions that it senses, same thing the the voice, so that milo can understand, and the program that is milo generates what to say...
its not impossible, and it isnt scripted
there are demos of people using it during E3 out there, check it out.
I'm not saying its impossible, But I think its made to be more than it is. I can't tell Milo that the Nazi's are coming via a interstellar rocket ship to steal his house and expect an aswer. Maybe scripted is a bit too strict, I shouldnt have used that word, Milos answers are just limited, and they make it out to more than It is I think.
Also, I believe the facial expression recogniztion. The concept is easy enough. I dont mean to downplay what they have accomplished, it is indeed a massive feat by any standards. But the second video makes this technology seem messianic or something, Which to me it really isnt.
But yes, It is an impressive jump in game tech.
