With the value of interactive Avatars becoming ever more popular, Lifemode Interactive, innovative creators of LIFESTUDIO:HEAD facial animation and lip-synch technology, are buoyed by the news that Research Machines plc (RM) are to release their new 'Easilearn' software incorporating their LIFESTUDIO:HEAD technology.
'Easilearn: The Island' is RM's latest educational release that assists students in education study subjects in an interactive manner. As an educational tool it gives a new reality to students that would normally only be available in books or films. Easilearn feels like a game to students, but poses problems that require an understanding of the subject matter.
Assistance is given by the programme guide who offers hints, tips, and advice throughout each exercise and makes the students feel that they are not alone.
The LIFESTUDIO:HEAD software was utilised in the creation of the various guides available.
Lifemode Interactive has seen a sharp rise in the demand for their software that creates talking heads with real-time lip-synching, using text, direct or .wav files for input. Many applications of the software have been in the e-learning and distance learning arena as well as general games, where they established themselves some time ago.
