It has, but the human body hasn't changed.

In Reply To
In regard to the motion capture suit....hasn't technology improved quite a bit in 11-12 years? The suit seems to only have a few key tracking points. I would have expected a much more complex suit with data points all over it, but then, I don't know the technology.
The suit looks identical to what he wore in 1999-2000.

So, the suit should be the same. The thing that has improved is the ability to capture facial animation. This would have to be applied by someone other the Andy just like make-up. Here is an Empire story with a picture of Andy in the facial capture set-up with PJ and Spielberg: http://www.empireonline.com/.../story.asp?NID=24608
