Abstract

We present a modular, novel mechanical device for animation authoring. The pose of the device is sensed at interactive rates, enabling quick posing of characters rigged with a skeleton of arbitrary topology. The mapping between the physical device and virtual skeleton is computed semi-automatically guided by sparse user correspondences. Our demonstration allows visitors to experiment with our device and software, choosing from a variety of characters to control.
