Yoostar release date
Yoostar has announced that its movie production system will be available on August 24th from Bloomingdale's stores and on September 8th from Best Buy outlets. Yoostar is an entertainment system consisting of a webcam with built-in dual microphones, a portable green-screen, and editing software that enables users to recreate well-known film scenes.
The software utilizes Active Immersion technology to digitally replace actors from the original movie video with a user's stand-in. Recreated scenes can also be shared on the Yoostar website, as well as through other social networking websites.
The system costs $170 and will include 14 scenes with a variety of roles. Users can also purchase additional scenes for $1 to $4 depending on the clip.
