Are there any affordable digital puppetry devices like mocap gloves or anything?

I saw a documentry on sid the science kid and jim henson studios how they use these gloves to do facial animation and hand / arm animation.

I looked into cheaper motion capture systems, opti track seems to be one of the cheapest, but yet still pretty pricey to me. Plus you have to buy like 8+ cameras.

Are there any "next gen digital puppetry" devices that are more affordable then full blown traditional mocap? I'm aware of using multiple kinects, but the results and quality is not that good nor realtime

Even if its not complete full body, just the ability to have some control to prototype and improv with your characters and then later clean it up / improve it with keyframe layers seems like alot more fun.

QUMA I think fits your requirement:
"Your most creative work is pre-production, once the film is in production, demands on time force you to produce rather than create."
