Modelling By Proxy

Here’s a pretty interesting project that reminded me a bit of my own Claymod project.

Basically it allows the user to use a sponge as an input device for a clay-like modelling program. You push on the sponge to deform the model. The sponge acts like your selection area and you can move it around to say where you want to edit. Tech wise, it looks like they use basic camera tracking to track markers that the user wears on his hands (and on the sponge). Overall it looks a bit silly and unweildy, but the basic idea is very clever.

This project was conducted at the University of Toronto, headed by Dr. Ravin Balakrishnan
