An article in the Boston Globe features ICT’s Ada and Grace, virtual human museum guides in the Boston Museum of Science that were based upon real-life model Bianca Rodriguez. The story describes scanning Rodriguez in the ICT Light Stage and follows her as she visits the museum to meet her digital doubles.
“The voices are different, but the movements are my movements,’’ she said as her voice trailed off and she shook her head at her cyberchildren. “The facial expressions, the way they hold their hands . . .’’
The online version of the article also shows ICT video footage of the process of turning Rodriguez into a virtual human.
