Plask, a free motion capture tool to run from the browser

Published

Motion capture techniques are part of the most interesting resources in the audiovisual world, because after a process that is usually complex, it is possible to animate a character based on the movements of a person.

Previously, the only way to put this technique into practice was through the use of sensor suits that report the movements of the monitored joints to an animation editor. However, now AI makes this task easier, leaving everything in the hands of a powerful application.

Motion capture for videos, free and from the browser

Plask is a complete motion capture tool for making animations. It is offered completely free of charge through the web, being available only through that route, for execution from the browser.

This service, from Korea, is committed to the unification of the main tools necessary for this type of work, through a web application conceived with the purpose of dispensing with accessory applications and whose interface reminds of Blender in a certain way, but in a more simplified.

The Plask interface has a system to manage projects in an orderly manner. The application also supports the main formats associated with these projects, such as GLB, FBX, BVH and others.

Additionally, for those who are just entering this world, this animation application offers a complete Handbook Introductory, which helps you get to know Plask better to realize his full potential.

According to its developers, Plask will soon have tools to collaborate as a team, generate NFTs and galleries, along with a dedicated space to highlight the work of some creators present on the platform.

This platform eliminates from the classic equation of this class of animations all the technical paraphernalia required before. Instead, depending only on a computer, an AI algorithm is responsible for identifying the extremities of the body and its main joints in a video, to track their movements and emulate their trajectory.

Not being an absolute replacement for professional animation technologies, results that can be obtained are more than striking if a video captured in good quality is used as a base.

Previous registration, you can start using this application totally free from plask.ai.

In China, an inexpensive smartphone with a 10x optical zoom can.

A $250 smartphone with 10x optical zoom?  In China, such a device will allegedly be released under the NZone brand.

NZone S7 Pro

The operator China Mobile under the NZone brand is preparing to release a model with the catalog number SP210, which will receive a triple main camera with a 10x optical zoom. Unfortunately, we only know that the main sensor will have a resolution of 50 megapixels.

Perhaps the information about 10x optical zoom is a mistake or a typo. Firstly, since the smartphone will cost only $250, and secondly, because NZone is China Mobile’s brand under which the company releases Huawei smartphones. And Huawei simply does not have an inexpensive smartphone with a 10x optical zoom. In fact, there are no such devices on the market at all.

Perhaps this refers to a hybrid zoom, or even only digital. But if, by some miracle, a $250 smartphone with a 10x optical zoom does come out, it will be a unique product.

From the rest, a 6.7-inch IPS screen, 5G support, an unknown eight-core platform, 8 GB of RAM, 128 or 256 GB of flash memory, and a 4900 mAh battery are reported. Dimensions will be 163.3 x 74.7 x 8.4 mm with a weight of 195 g.

Apple wants to use E Ink screens in the iPhone

Apple may start using E Ink screens in its devices. Well-known analyst Ming-Chi Kuo spoke about this.

Apple wants to use E Ink screens in the iPhone and iPad.  The company is testing similar displays as auxiliary displays for flexible models.

Apple is testing an E Ink display for future foldable devices. The E Ink color display can be the go-to solution for foldable devices that need a cover or second screen due to its excellent power savings

Kuo says that Apple considers such screens as additional ones. For example, it can be a small secondary screen on a foldable iPhone or a screen on an iPad case.

E Ink screens only consume energy to change the image, so they are great for such tasks. We have already seen smartphones with such screens, so there is nothing new for the market.

When such devices can enter the market is not yet clear, but Apple may not release the first foldable smartphones until 2025, according to the same analyst.

A new era in the Windows mobile game console market

With the release of Ryzen 6000 mobile processors, equipped with very powerful iGPUs, a new era of Windows handheld game consoles is dawning.

The Aya Neo 2 console with Ryzen 7 6800U was unveiled yesterday, and now GPD has boasted that it has already acquired a batch of the same APUs, so GPD Win Max 2 test models based on this platform should be ready by June. Judging by the entry, the company did not expect that it would be able to get the processors so quickly.

A new era in the Windows mobile game console market.  GPD has already received the Ryzen 7 6800U APU for the Win Max 2 console

GPD Win Max 2 was introduced back in March, but with a Core i7-1280P processor, but its graphics subsystem is no match for the iGPU in the Ryzen 7 6800U.

As a result, before the end of the year, at least two more portable set-top boxes with Windows that can handle modern games should appear on the market. True, apparently, in both cases we are talking about a Full HD screen, which creates an additional load on the GPU. For the same Steam Deck, the resolution is HD.
