    I did that in sparetime, but only up to the point where the quote ends :)



    Not so impressive because upper body is just stiff, but balancing a biped is really hard. Swinging arms would be easy to add.
    Unfortunately no time to continue on this currently, but this is where my heart is.
    I think this can do a lot for games (although i do not know what exactly yet, other than reducing mocap costs at least :) )
