Milo: Cloud Character

Posted by Sam Churchill on

A character called “Milo” made an appearance today at the TED Global conference in Oxford, England. The BBC reports that Milo will react to a person’s emotions, body movements and voice when working in conjunction with Microsoft’s upcoming Kinect video game device. Here’s a look.

The technology is the brainchild of veteran UK games designer Peter Molyneux.

“I want to introduce a new revolution in storytelling,” he told TED attendees. “His mind is based in the cloud,” he told the audience. “As millions of people use it, Milo will get smarter.”
