Ali Kord

AiQ Synertial, COO

Lewes, Vereinigtes Königreich

Ali has wide industrial experience in motion measurement and tracking and analysis product design and development and sold his first full body motion Capture system in 1997 for what you could buy a small apartment for. He is working on the development of a consumer sports mocap system today.

Ali studied Civil Engineering but quickly moved into electronics. In 1989 he co-founded Ingolf Inc., the first PC-based golf simulator system and by 1995 developed the first inertial electromechanical goniometric device to analyze the golf swing in real-time.

Working closely with Kinetix in San Francisco, Ali then veered the golf analyser towards the Animation professionals and entertainment in general which won Computer World Magazine’s most innovative product award for 1997. In 2005 he introduced the first full body mocap system using only wearable IMUs and in 2011 introduced the first ever IMU-only finger capture system which fathered the most accurate finger mocap system today.
