Metahuman Designs for Therapy

I’m really loving creating the characters for our Speech Therapy App.

A definite advantage of using Metahumans is that we can change the character easily, with the press of a button. If we can provide patients with a wide variety of characters to practice reading emotions on then they will be better equipped when they go out into the real world. Epic have provided us with an amazing tool and we’re lucky to be able to use it to make real improvements in the quality of patient’s lives.

Unreal Multiplayer with Metahumans

I now have all the major functionality working in a multiplayer version of the therapy app. There was another very steep learning curve with multiplayer functionality but I’m slowly starting to get my head around it. Luckily there’s not a lot of interaction requirements in this app to try and figure out, just enough to make it really interesting.

Next stop is to create the animations that our Metahumans will be portraying, creating more cool Metahumans and implementing some of the nice lighting setups I was working on earlier.
