Animation Supermodel Mannequin?

*Update from a previous post from last July

Interesting article over on c|net about a hands-on input device that could be useful for illustrators and animators. It's scheduled to hit the market in a few months (only $850).

Thought this quote was a bit to presumptuous though  'the foot-tall Qumarion mannequin could radically simplify the process of creating realistic movement in 3D computer-generated models.'

Its funny, their basically reinventing stopmotion puppet animation. Just make a puppet and point a camera at it, you've accomplished the same thing, but better.
