Golf swing motion capture and analysis

Working for Inition on a golf swing motion capture and analysis application.
Using Polhemus magnetic field sensors, lots of quaternion equations were needed to correctly calculate the bones positions accurately.

The Polhemus mocap system worked by placing sensors on key parts of the human anatomy.
It was extremely good accuracy, but was also expensive.

    Magic Mirror – Rain

    I exhibited a new Magic Mirror entitled ‘Rain’ with the Seaec organised exhibition in Hastings at the beginning of October. Looking into the Magic Mirror results in the appearance of heavy rainfall upon your head and shoulders. The rain splashes off you; moving your hands and head and body create a silhouette in the rainfall. I Magic Mirror – Rain
