Digital Hair is... Hairy

The technology that ensures that ladies and professional wrestlers look bad in games is coming along, but right now it's still only good for Bjork videos.

NewScientist has a brief piece on digital hair. Polygonal hair technology is, weirdly enough, one of those things I look at whenever a new console comes out. When Yuke's can finally make Triple H's long, stringy, ugly-looking hair look as realistically awful in the SmackDown! games as it does in real life, then we'll know that technology has finally reached its zenith.

And then we'll have nothing left to look forward to but death's sweet embrace, friends. Strap in and watch this video, complete with creepy shots of fake hair and how that fake hair technology was used to power a Bjork video.
