Representatives from motion capture firm PhaseSpace have have announced that California-based game developer NovaLogic (Delta Force
franchise, Comanche 4
) has purchased an Impulse motion capture system for use on future game development projects.
PhaseSpace, which specializes in developing new technologies and products for emerging motion tracking markets, counts among its clients a number of notable organizations and institutions, including University of California – Berkeley, NASA, and Lockheed Martin, as well as German publisher 10tacle Studios and Belgian developer elseWhere Entertainment.
According to PhaseSpace officials, the company was approached by NovaLogic's manager or network operations, Glenn Kronick, following his reading of a November 2006 article in Computer Graphics World regarding motion capture technology that prominently featured PhaseSpace.
Following a demonstration of the technology, NovaLogic purchased PhaseSpace's Impulse motion capture technology, which will be used by NovaLogic to create more realistic in-game characters that show actual human motion, rather than just an approximation thereof. However, no information has been released concerning what current or future projects by NovaLogic will make use of this new technology.
