RDW in Shanghai

Setting up our mocap studio in the exhibition hall.

One of the greatest experiences of my studies in Metropolia happened when I got to attend the Radical Design Week at Shanghai as part of my university's representing team. We were a group of nearly 30 people, students and teachers from the field of culture and creative industries doing an exhibition at Donghua University. With my animation teacher and a fellow classmate we set up a mocap workshop Tai chi for beginners. We had only a week of practising the mocap software behind us so it was a bit unnerving. At some point came the idea to test how our system could handle the capturing and tracking the movements of two people.
