they use voice samples from troy baker to train a speech synthesis software, and then only the NFT holder can use that particular TTS model

seems like it's been quite well received

https://twitter.com/VoiceverseNFT/status/1482063228746096642

sure is weird how all these corporate-y NFT projects are all actively listening to feedback and changing for the better within like a week of launching when they always start out saying that people have been clamoring for a way to "make new things, and allow everyone a chance to own & invest in the IP’s they create"

:thunk:

look our product was so bad we had to steal someone else's and pass it off as our own, but once we've made it big we'll be able to use our success to fund a real version of our product, it's fine

So, I'm buying what exactly? The ability to have robot Troy Baker emotionlessly produce some words for my commercial video game? And it's 100% legal even if my video game is about Broy Taker saying a bunch of racist things?

lmao a vaporware electric motorcycle company did exactly this; took some royalty free video of ducati's electronic bike and put it in their own sizzle reel. their intended customer base was not amused. the weak rear end excuse the ceo gave was "boo hoo the weather in vancouver is rainy and there isn't a track with a good charger anywhere, i can't believe those rascals in marketing would do such a thing," just big lols all around.

i love how every NFT more complex than a jpg that goes viral immediately gets exposed as a fraud

i mean, even beyond than the lie that all NFTs are based on which is "you'll be able to resell this for a profit"

we have an important update on the 76ers

https://defector.com/76ers-partner-company-well-try-to-plug-ben-simmons-into-the-metaverse/

quote:

Late last year, the Philadelphia 76ers announced a “partnership” with Color Star Technology. At the time, the 76ers’ press release called Color Star an “entertainment technology company with a global network that focuses on the application of tech and artificial intelligence (AI) in the entertainment industry.” Its CEO, Lucas Capetian—known in Color Star press releases and Color Star SEC filings as “Sir Lucas Capetian”—was represented with an avatar clearly made in iClone, a 3-D modeling animation software. (“Their CEO does exist,” a Sixers spokesperson told Defector.) Color Star’s app, which supposedly would feature “exclusive interviews with 76ers representatives, including executives and former players,” simply played a confusing video.

rainbow dash why are you making such a cool face?!

Gonna use this excuse anytime someone asks why the website is broken

quote:

Given Color Star’s international team, the Western cultural importance of aspects of website design and social media presence was put on the backburner in favor of fully committing to the expansion and construction of Color World’s innovative application. Considering major business forces like many Chinese millionaires’ conscious choice to not to use social media, Color Star’s platform-first approach is standard for a global company of its stature—though, keenly aware of this perception by the Western media, Color Star has major plans in store to elevate its internet presence as it continues to establish its presence throughout the global marketplace.
