Ok, this is pretty cool. The second video shows them using a real life “action figure” or mini-mannequin to drive a CG character.

Qumarion a USB input device for 3D applications that uses a puppet to manipulate a 3D CGI character.  I’m thinking if this was used to set key frames from pose to pose, frame to frame, like you would animated a stop motion puppet you might be able to simulate the stop motion animation experience and feel.  I would love to check this out. Unfortunately it’s not available in the US yet. Running around $750.00 I look forward to see how this might be used in the animation industry.  Visit the website at  http://www.clip-studio.com/quma/en/
