Last week I came across a pretty cool picture from the filming of Pirates of the Caribbean (I have no idea which of the movies). It shows what the actors looked like when the movie was being filmed, and then what they actually look like in the movie with all of the CGI and special effects. How do actors take themselves seriously with little balls stuck all over their body? Fortunately, they won’t have to much longer if Organic Motion has anything to say about it. They’re a New York, NY based company that “a leading innovator of computer vision and highly advanced motion capture systems.” They’ve developed a combined software/hardware solution that enables computers to capture the motion of humans and other organisms—no little balls necessary. It’s a huge breakthrough that can be used in all kinds of different applications.
Motion tracking used to require a ton of setup, with Organic Motion’s equipment, you can track motion instantaneously. It’s been used in a wide array of industries including Education, Animation & Entertainment, Life Sciences, Military, and Public Venues. I also have to imagine that it can be amazing useful in Athletics. Instead of having to pretend to play a sport while you wear cumbersome equipment, you can actually play the sport and leave the rest to the computers. Organic Motion offers three specific solutions that are tailored to different use cases: Stage, BioStage, and OpenStage. You can read about Organic Motion’s Success Stories to learn about exactly how innovative companies are using these solutions. The technology behind Organic Motion is pretty complex, so you should probably read up on it before considering a job with them. After you do that, you can head over to their Careers page. Right now they’re looking for a variety of more experienced Software Engineers, but they also have a posting for a Stage Installation Operations Associate that looks well suited to a new grad. Check it out.
