BBC News has this report on researchers at MIT who have created a virtual wolf pack where individuals can play at being puppies. Apparently this is what passes for serious scientific research nowadays :)
I saw this while I was in Siggraph this year. If anyone wants some pics of it I can send them to you :).
The scenes looked WILD kinda 3d with a whispy hand drawn look. Truly amazing... not to mention the AI and the fact that in order to control the critters you have to yap, bark and howl into the mic :)
I was raised by Dalmatians. Or, at least, that's what I like to say (and that's what the Dalmatians believe!)
Thank heavens, I wasn't raised by poodles. As soon as I see another dog, it would be "yapyapyapyapyapyapyapyapyapyapyapyapyap..."
