This week, the Serious Games Meetup Group convenes on Friday, April 7 at 10:30 a.m. Usually, the Serious Games Meetup is in LY118 but this week we’ll meet in the Media Center’s TV Studio on the 4th floor of Lyons Hall, to explore DMA’s new motion capture system. DMA faculty, with support from the Dean of Art and Sciences, Dr. Beth Gill, recently acquired an inexpensive “Mocap” system, a popular toolset among independent game developers. Motion capture is a way of capturing real human motions and mapping them onto virtual avatars. Among many other possibilities, a Mocap system could be used in analysis of an athlete’s performance, kinesiology and physical therapy.
Join us in the Media Center TV studio for this exciting opportunity!
