Howdy.

Something I have been working on for the past couple of days. An intuitive way of controlling an arm using IK.

Here is a video:

I think that's a very interesting way of defining a movement path, but is there a way of "smoothing out" the erroneous movements input via the cursor grab & drag process? Clarifying, I certainly can't draw with a mouse and a paint program, and I'm sorely lacking in any skills that would justify utilizing a tablet, so I'm thinking that with a drag-input movement specification that unwanted path deviations would inevitably also be captured, no? If that is the case I would gather that a good consumer-level trackball-based mouse would help minimize the deviations but wouldn't think they'd be entirely eliminated either - at least definitely not in my case! :)
