Motion capture & Rapid prototyping to create 3d sketches.

The very cool work of the Swedish design group Front, In their work they have assigned part of the making of design to animals, computers or machines. They have made a constantly changing interior, created objects with explosions, robotic furniture and a range of furniture inspired by their fascination with magic.  
Front developed a unique method to materialise free hand sketches, by combining two advanced techniques for the first time. Pen strokes made in the air were recorded with Motion Capture and then translated into 3-D files. The 3-D files were materialised trough Rapid Prototyping into real pieces of furniture 
A laser beam builds the 3-D file layer by layer within a liquid plastic material. After a few hours, the 3-D files come out as materialised pieces.  
What about using rapid prototyping to produce 3d typography objects for installations? Some design for thought. Furniture today, what will it be tomorrow..
