Faceware Technologies, the leading innovator and most experienced provider of markerless 3D facial motion capture solutions, announced that video game developer, Bungie, Inc., has chosen to use Faceware’s Professional Facial Motion Capture Product Line to add lifelike expressions and human-realistic emotions to Destiny’s characters.

[yframe url=’http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iTXN9uCd0mw’] What’s new is the scene where we see three guardians sitting and enjoying the view, as well as the scene with the guardians on their Shrikes. This seems to confirm both the sitting emote as well as the pointing emote while riding in vehicles.
Read the full Weekly Update here. This week at Bungie, we ventured forth from our Tower on another dangerous mission. Our objective was the same as it always is: World Domination. There are people on this planet who have yet to receive our brave invitation to adventure. Unlike you, the elite community that’s mined and dissected every detail we’ve let slip from our grasp, they know not their destiny.

A fresh build of Destiny sits on every desk in the studio – a monument to a battle for the ages. Four dueling schools have laid down arms to reconstruct our union. Our team has been reunited. As the smoke cleared from the air, Luke Smith stopped by my desk. When he stops by, I listen. In the golden age of Halo 3, he walked this very beat. Now, he’s
