Time modulated active marker MoCap

Time modulated active marker MoCap or motion capture, is actually simply a refinement to active marker MoCap.

Active marker is an optical real-time body positioning and movement tracking method whereby a network of LEDs all over the body, positioned along bones, and between joints, are illuminated one after the other, at a rate too swift for the human eye to catch.

Time modulation, instead of doing one at a time, strobes the LEDs. Several are turned on at the same time, but each flashes at a different frequency rate, allowing them to be individually ID?d. This form of unique marking, radically increases the resulting capture frequency, as instead of cycling through markers one at a time, they are done in staggered simultaneous batches.

The trade-off is of course a far higher processing overhead than standard active marker. However, in recent years, that has become almost a non-issue.

Combining MoCap and Gesture Recognition
MoCap - Motion Capture - for all its impressive abilities, has definite limitations in terms of sensory fidelity, the expense and bulk of the rig. Gesture control is cheap and captures every little movement, but easily overwhelmed. Is a hybrid system possible?

Lessons from Simone: MoCap Filter
Simone is a seminal virtual reality film, and there are several aspects of both the technology of VR and the social impact, which the film carries off very well, and which deserve to stand on their own merits. The MoCap filter the film alludes to, is one such aspect.

World Review: Active Worlds
World Review: Active Worlds welcome screen
Active Worlds is a crossbreed. Nominally used as a 3D chatspace, its also a hive of creative building, the codebase for several RPGs, and the source of inspiration for many new VR ventures.

AW itself is made up of a collection of worlds, sharing the same graphical base, yet it manages to maintain cohesion as a 'worldlet' of sorts itself.
