If you haven’t seen the World of Warcraft: Dancing video yet, you should. The combination of avatar dancers superimposed over dance clips is pretty cool, but what really makes it impressive to me is just how far desktop computer animation technology has come over the years. I still remember how impressive PONG, a first generation video game, was with a single blocky pixel bouncing around the screen in black and white. Fast forward 30 some years, and now there are these game characters able to dance with the likes of John Travolta or Michael Jackson.
Here’s the video and list of clips:
