An innovative 3D motion capture figure has been developed by SoftEther in Japan, and has been designed to provide a more intuitive method of creating computer generated animations in real-time.
Called Quma, the human-like doll has sensors linked to its joints, simply pose and move the figures limbs and watch the animation carried out in realtime on your computer screen. Watch the video after the jump to see Quma in action.
Quma is currently designed to replicate the movements of a human but SoftEther explains that the technology can be applied to any form and is only restricted by your imagination. Quma is still currently under development so no information on pricing or worldwide availability has been released as yet, but as soon as information comes to light we will keep you updated as always.
