Real or... real? Artist duo unveils the latest 2016 version of ultra-realistic virtual human Saya
Saya is no ordinary schoolgirl. In fact, she’s not even human. But you couldn’t tell that just by looking at her picture. She’s a creation by Tokyo-based 3D artist couple Teruyuki and Yuka Ishikawa (you can follow them on Twitter at @mojeyuka). The first pictures of Saya they twitted back in October 2015 became an instant sensation and now, with this year’s upgrade, it’s practically impossible to tell whether this is an actual person or not. The details are impeccable.
Saya also wears proper shoes and socks, modelled down to every tiny detail. According to @mojeyuka, Saya’s 3D model is rigged for animation. They’re planning to release a short movie this Fall.
