Could you have spotted the difference between those last pics of Hye Kyo had I not pointed it out? I know I wouldn't have.

    Good post, it is very possible to reach that stage. It is possible to improve the quality of pictures, of people or just in general, to a point where they are clearer than reality. This is called hyper realism (i think that's the name, not sure) and has been around for some time. If that kind of quality can be created by a computer eventually we can consider it being applied to gaming.

    Doubt it... Not in this generation of technology... We might be able to render a photo to make it realistic, but in terms of gaming, we simply do not have the technology for this generation of consoles to render graphics that real, as well as the environmental lighting effects, physics, and not to mention the billions of pixels it would take to render those graphics in a game... Then you have issues like A.I. among other things... Its just too much to power on our dinky little xboxs...

    Umm, it's hard to explain. I guess the easiest way to describe it is as pixel count. Imagine the human eye can only take in a maximum quality of image (pixel count), if you create an image with more pixels, and thus higher definition, than a human eye would ever be able to diagnose then it is a quality beyond what we would be able to see in our world.

    Of course because we're still limited we wouldn't be able to see any improvement, it would just be completely real looking. Although it'd be like having a world where you could use zoom.

    Well of course not this generation. Although the PS3 could possibly generate an animation to this level. Anything powerful enough to create something like that is likely being used for something far more important. We will however reach that stage eventually (i personally think it will come after consoles become outdated though).

    How can something digitally produced be clearer than reality, humans' perception of the clarity of reality is formed by the quality of our eyesight. Surely our eyesight limits us from seeing anything in clearer quality than reality itself?
