OK, karaoke can be fun, but now there's Movioke. Play the parts you want in your favorite movies. Well, it sounds like you just speak along with the characters on the screen, over the soundtrack. But what would be cool would be if, like in karaoke, the real actor and his voice was digitally edited out of the film, and you were superimposed in there instead. Of course that's a bit of a hard trick at this point. Anyway, I'll start off myself in the small:
"I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched C-beams glitter in the darkness near the Tannhauser gate. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain."
It is an easy one, but guess where it is from.

5 Mar 2004 @ 17:23 by jmarc : the special effects were cool
but they didn't follow the Dick novel too closely...Heres mine..

Here's what the price is tonight, Chief.
Twenty-five grand to go for it,
plus twenty-five more if I land it,
all repairs on the boat, and on
me, a new rod from Haydy's in
London, a life subscription to
Playboy, a stereo 4-track and the
color TV.

Yes Flemming, even more kewl if our voice could be superimposed in the film. I bet if we give it a bit more time, that will come too. Thanks for the link.

Sounds fun. Could work too if it was combined with a Dance-Dance-Revolution interface. Better yet if the mat would light up, to show you where to move.
