A model to control/pose 3D digital models

A friend and I want to do some art/animation.  We chatted and he said he ordered body-kun models and gave me a discount code to order some too so I did.  But then I thought we obviously can't afford real life motion capture, but what if such a toy model could hook up to USB port and control 3D Digital models on the computer.  That would be a great product.  We already have the mouse wheel control, just need to make like 13 of those on a model that sends the controls to a (probably custom written software) to control 3D Digital models to control/pose them.
I searched the internet and can't find such a thing so it probably doesn't exist yet.
:(
If it did, I would most definitely buy it.
