Hats off to the people from Shirai Lab., Kanagawa Institute of Technology in Japan for developing this cool technology which lets you create your own personalized manga using yourself by making your desired pose which is displayed real-time on screen.
A real-time shader converts the image into manga-style which fits perfectly with the chosen background in the frame. The biggest feature of this system is, it observes a person’s posture, chooses a background to match, and synthesizes the two.
As an industrial application, a customized version is on show at Manga Kingdom Tottori. That’s being experienced by hundreds of people every day. So, commercial applications have also advanced quite a lot.
