I wasn't sure to whom to direct this mail, so I decided to make this 
available to everyone.

I went to the BoF sessions about Blender at Siggraph, my first contact 
with the application, and I am very, very impressed! This program is 
better in so many respects than many commercially available 
applications. Congratulations!

But I should come to the point:

I would like to offer a collection of motion capture related code to 
the Blender community. A few years ago, I wrote a real-time motion 
capture application for magnetic mocap systems (Ascension, multiple 
simultaneous racks, and Polhemus), and Gyspsy. There's also code for 
5th-Gloves and Cyberglove. This all is hooked to a calibration system 
that outputs positional and angular data.

If the Blender community is interested, I would donate the code to the 
project and donate as much time as needed to understand and hook up the 
code. Unfortunatly, I will not be able to code for your guys since I 
have a full time job and kids... .

Let me know what you think.
