I had an opportunity to talk with Gene Alexander, CEO, of MaMoCa an Irvine, CA company developing solutions for the motion capture industry. If you go the their site, www.mamoca.com, it becomes clear what they are talking about since you see Tom Hanks going through some motions for a part he played in an animated film.
MaMoCa’s solution is far superior to the current technologies, which means that the resultant capture provides significantly more information that leads to a more realistic animation.
Their current focus is towards the gaming industry where the revenue numbers are big and less fragmented than other applications. It seems hard to believe that the graphics can get more realistic that they already are.
So, if you have twenty minutes, you can download the cast at http://socalbuzz.podbus.com/Gene_Alexander_MaMoCa.mp3.
I hope you enjoy it as much as I did in creating it.
