Street Flips Motion Capture Lab and School of Tricking

I am proud to announce that Street Flips will be opening a motion capture lab and school of martial arts tricks, flips, and breakdance in New York. With our vision to produce new and groundbreaking innovations, we decided to fuse together the digital and the action sports worlds, bringing together young athletes and future computer engineers to work together in a positive after-school environment where academics, performing arts, and sports could combine. The SF school will train young athletes in tricking, flips, breakdance, and martial arts, while their computer-savvy peers study their motions and learn to capture and enhance the athletes' motions and manipulate motion data with joint control capture capabilities. The school will annually produce studies on new performance arts to provide new information and other literature on motions and theories thereof regarding tricking, parkour, and breakdancing. The school will be opening this August in either downtown Manhattan or in Williamsburg in New York City.
For more information, stay tuned to this blog. Additionally, the SF School's website is currently in development but will be on the official website by the end of the week.
