Movement capture devices
MA Architecture and Digital Media update: This year, the Applied Animation module, directed by Nick Puckett, examined the opportunities presented by making movement capture devices. Using the Arduino board and standard sensors, custom-designed analogue devices were used to drive animations in Maya. This approach allows the complex data derived from physical devices to be reflected in the animations. Also, in keeping with Nick’s wider research interests, these mechanisms suggest the possibility of employing hardware devices as design tools.
