From Muppets to Digital Puppets by motion capture system

The Jim Henson Company has remained an established leader in family entertainment for over 50 years and is recognized worldwide as an innovator in puppetry, animatronics and digital animation.

In 2008 Jim Henson Company has created some of history’s greatest puppets, including Kermit the Frog, but it’s latest character, Sid the Science Kid, is completely digital.

QUMA Motion Capture Puppet

<

The QUMA (pronounced Cooma), from Japanese company SoftEther, works kind of like those 3D wooden mannequins that artists often pose when sketching the human body. Except that the QUMA connects to your PC over USB, and the majority of the puppets’ joints feature sensors that not only detect when they’ve been moved and adjusted, but also translate those movements to the character in your 3D software.

Japan-based SoftEther has developed a 3D motion-capture figure to create computer graphics and animations in 3D. Known as the QUMA, this human-like doll has a set of joints throughout its body, all of which are equipped with sensors and can be moved freely by the user. The QUMA motion capture puppet is ideal for designers and engineers to create 3D CG animation. Watch the video after the jump.

藉由3DMAX  studio中3D character Plugin–“ragdoll”讓建立出來的虛擬偶可以更接近真實世界中碰撞(physics collision)的狀態.讓程式不斷碰撞偵測(collision detect)以及服裝模擬(cloth simulation).人虛擬空間的人物更真實.
