Yoostar Puts the User in the Film

yoostar-sbAccording to Gary Sharpiro, president and CEO of CEA, Yoostar is “what CES is all about”. I can only assume that the Yoostar was on display at CES last January, but I must have missed it.

What a shame. The Yoostar looks like a really sweet product that allows an ordinary person to insert themselves into a movie. It comes with a portable green screen, a high resolution webcam, and a microphone to make this special effect.

The Yoostar comes with special software that can remove an actor or actress from a scene and insert the player/user saying whatever he or she wants. The example from the official website shows a scene from Witness, with some guy doing a terrible Harrison Ford impersonation.

The system also includes clips from films like The Godfather, Forrest Gump, The Terminator, Employee of the Month, Psycho, Rocky Balboa, and several others. Once the user has created his or her movie parody, it can be uploaded to his or her Facebook site with just a click of a mouse.

The Yoostar is expected to come out in August for $169.95, and it could easily be the next cool thing if it could do every movie. I can think of several flicks that I would love to put myself in.
