3D Scanning people for Avatars
It is possible to use 3D Scanning technology to create lifelike avatars, so they can be dropped into Virtual Worlds. Each camera is designed to take a shot - a little slice, which then gets stitched together.

Experiencing Virtual World
As we experience and interact in real world through our bodies, the same thing must happen in Virtual Reality.
By interacting with Virtual World through our Digital Double Avatars, we will be learning and personalizing our VR experience.
Brian, from Utherverse Studios Inc, a Vancouver based Virtual Reality studio, reckons that by creating an avatar that actually looks like you, you'll get a more intense experience.
Potential of Virtual Reality
Virtual reality has the potential to bring people much closer together. We will be able to choose our friends, looks and ethnicity.
We will be able to customize the Virtual World and make it react to "the other you".
In a way, we will be able to split test human interactions.
