Putting yourself in the movies... YooStar 2

Techstination feature for Monday, March 21, 2011

     Putting  yourself in the movies.     I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.   YooStar 2 has arrived and unlike the original version of the game,  it is designed to work on game consoles… Microsoft’s Xbox Kinect and Sony’s PS3 Move.   It uses the console  cameras to let you act out specific movie scenes and then lets you view your performance within the movie clips.   And the fun, says YooStar CEO Greg Fischbach, doesn’t stop there…

“You can save it.  And you can leave it in your house or if you’d really like, you can put it up on Facebook or on Twitter and I think pretty soon you’ll be able to put it up on YouTube as well.   And what we were able to do is we created a companion game that is also as inviting, as intriguing as the video game, called YouStar Playground, which sits on Facebook.”
