"Pen strokes made in the air are recorded with Motion Capture and become 3D digital files; these are then materialized through Rapid Prototyping into real pieces of furniture." -

Implications - The project makes use of motion capture technology commonly used in video games and movies. The pen strokes make are recorded through motion capture which are then transformed into 3D digital files. Then these are "materialized through Rapid Protoyping into real pieces of furniture," according to This type of interactive art is fun and it shows just how far technology has come over the past couple of years. Sketch Furniture may inspire artists to take digital imagery to the next level.
