Animation Input Devices

Tangible and Modular Input Device
While I'm on the subject of digital imaging today as opposed to early on, I came across this device for inputting motion for animated c.g. rigs.  It's called a Tangible and Modular Input Device for Character Articulation.  And you can read about it at the links below.

There's also a movie here: http://youtu.be/vBX47JamMN0

This thing  reminds me of something called the Monkey which was used early on as a way of helping stop-motion animators to switch over to c.g.

We had one at the old Will Vinton Studios but I don't recall it having worked too well.  It's is very cool looking though.
