I just love dancing don't you? Jaded Exonar reporting ....

With the holiday season upon us, and parties waiting around every corner, this is the perfect time to pull out your very best dance moves!  This is often harder than it might seem in Second Life!  

Remember the days when you had to click on a dance ball and hold your breath as your gorgeous avatar jolted and jiggled across the floor like an anathematized patient?  Or perhaps when you clicked your shiny new chimera, only to watch yourself dancing a little robotically, or even just a bit unrealistically?  Well, I certainly do!  Recently there has been a dance revolution, with the new advances and availability of motion capture technology, moves are more fluid and natural then ever - And from the very crème of this new delicious breakthrough, comes  'Humanoid'.  The Humanoid team not only use the latest in motion capture technology to bring us those smooth moves, but have taken it a step further.  Using a team of real life dancers, Markus Adkins represents this amazing breakthrough brand.

Each dancer has their own style, vibe, and personality that is perfectly recorded in beautiful detail using motion capture technology.  There are videos showing the dancers as they perform, allowing us to not only choose the dance we like the most, but the person we most identify with!   As you watch, you can really get a sense of just how new this concept is!

Each dancer is asked to dance naturally to the beat they are given - It may sound obvious, but by leaving the artistic representation down to their own rhythm and not a strict choreography, the result is a long, detailed and balanced routine.  Often beginning with a slower warm up, and soft, natural transitions, you can choose the exact combination to suit you.  No more false, gravity defying moves - Just astounding reality right there on your screen.

This approach has led to some of the most natural moves throughout the grid, and perhaps more importantly, the most realistic and individualized styles achievable for both men and women. Have I been asked to advertise Humanoid? No.  I am writing as just one of the growing number of customers and admirers of this incredible team.  All of the dances are available in the marketplace, but I would strongly suggest that you head on over to their main store - Not only will it allow you to see the huge variety on offer, and to try them out, there is also a free dance available (one for men, one for women) so you can see the difference this unique technological approach can really offer.  Happy dancing people!
