Abstract:


     Motor area that controls the movements of the human body is divided functionally into each control region. In the motor area, the area of the hand is almost the same as the total area of arm, torso and lower body. This physiological fact indicates that human hand movements require very complicated control. As a result, our hand can perform high precision movements as an actuator. Motion capture (MoCap) technique that can digitize a position and a posture as a time-series data, is widely used in order to create animation and CG. It is very difficult to measure all hand movements because one hand has twenty-seven bones and nineteen joints. The most widely used tool for a hand MoCap has been Cyber glove (Immersion) that can digitize only 80 percent of all hand movements. Therefore, it has been impossible to record the finger movements of a pianist that are high in speed and in accuracy.
