I worked with motion capture tools intensively during the c(o)urse of my PhD studies. It’s always a lot of fun and a lot of work. The best of all is having enthusiast participants for the experiments, whom I am really grateful. Lately, I’ve been working at two motion capture laboratories: at CIRMMT and at BRAMS, both from Qualisys. Motion capture can be a trick tool to work with, so experience and persistence are keys for reliable acquisitions. I usually say that it is important to have professionals to consume and to develop technology for motion analysis. I do prefer to be the group that develop tools for it.
I also worked on motion capture collaborating to other projects:
- string quartet gesture analysis, SIEMPRE/Spain project (2011);
- evaluation of a fMRI compatible keyboard designed by Avrum Holinger, a IDMIL fellow collaborating with a neuroscience research (2012);
- laterality in musical gesture, by Benjamin Bacon (2013/2014).
