About the Movement Lab
Movement Lab LogoThe NYU Movement Lab is a motion capture studio and research group dedicated to the analysis and animation of all forms of human movement.  It is housed at NYU's ITP Tisch School of the Arts, and Courant Institute's VLG. Many projects are at the boundary between computer science, dance, performance art, animation, medical research, and other uses of motion capture technology.  It is mainly funded by grants from NYU, the National Science Foundation, ONR, and Sloan Foundation.
