VIDEO: Japan's Manga Generator Software Puts YOU in the Story

Strike a pose and launch fireballs

If you’ve ever wanted your likeness to be immortalized in manga, good news: a band of researchers in Japan have come with a new computer program that puts YOU in the picture! Watch the demo video for Manga Generator below!

 

 

Some viewers may be reminded of the Manga-Camera app that was everywhere a while back, but the integration of real-time video using what looks like an Xbox Kinect – which allows for wacky body poses – seems to be the upgrade here, along with being able to print out the results.

 

What’s not clear is how much control users will have over the actual stories and scripts themselves, but you can bet that someone will defy the gods with a dumb hentai joke before too long.
