I’ve been in touch with Nathan Berger about this and I’m contacting you to see if you have any thoughts about ways this equipment might be useful. If it’s technology whose time has passed, we’ll send it out to pasture.

Subject: CREATE_space Motion Capture & Your School/Division

Dear Directors,

I will be going through the CREATE_space inventory this Summer, and I will be asking for input from your faculty and staff as to future purchases, directions, ideas, etc.. One such item which was purchased back in 2006/7 and which has been historically under utilized needs my attention (and your input) now: The Shapewrap II Motion Capture Suite<http://www.motion-capture-system.com/gallery.html>.

Do you know of any of your employees which would be (or are) interested in using this piece of technology for their work?

I as this question because this specific equipment is underutilized, takes up a good deal of space, is aging in support (none to speak of from the company), and requires much internal support work to be put to good use. I am inquiring to determine a course of action concerning the retirement of this resource. Any input would be greatly appreciated.

-As an aside, if any are interested in motion capture, but not this suite, we have worked preliminarily with consumer grade camera based setups here in the lab for MDIA students, with moderate success. This may be a cheap, expandable, suiteless, viable alternative.
