L.A. Noire videogame pushes the envelope on facial

Rockstar Games, the makers of the Grand Theft Auto video game behemoth, are getting ready to launch their latest caper period piece.  In this one, you are not trying to rack up levels of alert by outrunning police cruisers and running over the innocent- not to mention knocking off a few ladies of the evening…  L.A. Noire places you at the helm of a criminal investigation where you play the cop… ’nuff said, you can get the rest of the plot at the official site.

Although I am not an avid video game player, I had stumbled upon their making-of video involving the newest technology in facial recognition.  Watch the video here and see for yourself.  It is mind blowing and a bit scary at the same time.
