Re: Motion capture systems and martial arts
I think it is a wonderful idea. Regardless of what mental pathways need to be created, you still need to have a form within which to set those up. Otherwise, people would just be making attackers fall from across the room. However, as I said before I think it would be interesting to have a mode where you can show what the forces are doing inside the bodies, and it would be an interesting extention to add where the mind pictures the paths to ground as well.
(Interpreting "aren't all that helpful" as 'seems worthless' didn't seem that passive-aggressive to me. I got the impression that it would be worthless to you too - what's the big deal?)
