Xsens MVN Wearable Motion-Capture Systems
A few years ago, I saw a projection show by Skrillex that featured motion capture. It was XSENS mocap, specifically an MVN Suit that allowed him to move and perform characters that became part of his stage presentation. The MVN is a full body suit that includes several small trackers in the suit that allows your actor to move quickly/easily. The Awinda system gives you the ability to record wirelessly too.

It's also been used for feature films, including the first Ted and now Ted 2. Read More
