Road map

Updated: 06 March 2017

 

The technology of virtual humanoids is constantly in evolution, so it's hard to list all the features to implement and the amount of research and time required.

The list below is just the outline of the development.

The roadmap is designed to have a release every two-three months.

Principal features planned for ManuelbastioniLAB 1.5

Estimated date of release, see: Detailed list of remaining tasks.

This release will be mainly focused on motion capture support.

Features planned for ManuelbastioniLAB 1.6

This release will be focused on the improvement of the skin editor, in order to add more options, more details and greatly improve the quality and the realism of the rendering.

Features planned for ManuelbastioniLAB 1.7

This release will be mainly focused on a complex engine for muscle simulation.

Features planned for ManuelbastioniLAB 1.8

Other features

Depending many factors, some of these features can be moved in one of the releases above. Most of them will be developed after 1.8.

*The features marked with an asterisk can be postponed, depending on the time required by the development of main goal.

*Features marked with the "?" are still under feasibility evaluation.
