Mo Cap Romance

Lonely male researchers at Northumbria University in Britain recently launched an investigation into how they should dance in order to best attract women. The scientists took anonymous motion capture footage of men dancing in order to remove confusing variables such as social status, height, athletic physique, winning smile, perfect hair, or a competent grasp on contemporary fashion. With the digital avatars now on equal playing field with the scientists, the motion capture footage was shown to to women to be rated for sex appeal.


The researchers are now practicing gyrating with "a high degree of variability and amplitude of movements of the head and pelvis."

Next, they plan on studying the sex appeal of female dance by dressing women in spandex motion capture suits and having them dance in their lab while they film them; which is, in theory, a much better way for the scientists to meet women.
