    Mo-cap mannikin



    So, will this be the preferred method of of setting key frames for 3D animation in the future? What are other possible applications for artists? I personally wouldn't mind it sans electronics as an action figure, myself.

    ...Eh. It's cool I guess. Not sure if it'll be good to use for animation, but then again I don't know anything about 3D animation.

    That's just what I was thinking. By itself, it would also be good for drawing reference.

    that looks interesting...
    looks time consuming if i have to keep changing the pose by hand
    wouldn't it be faster getting into the suit and moving around capturing the movement and the poses?

    That an interesting gadget! But I think it'll remain in the realm of toys. I'm also pretty sure the 3D model on the right side has been retouched in some of the shots afterwards (especially when it comes to self contact). I guess this would be the doll/action figure of the near future, for all these kids that are so used to computers. But for as a professional tool, too unpractical.

    Side note, these wood mannequins for artists should all be burnt.

    Cheers!

    Reminds me of the "Dinosaur Input Devices" they used in the first Jurassic Park so that animators who were trained in traditional stop-motion could animate on the computer.
