Affordable Motion Capture using Your VR Device with IKinema’s Orion
Here is VR tech providing another interesting application that is relevant to our field. IKinema has introduced a new mocap / body tracking software package that uses off the shelf VR hardware like the HTC Vive. The accuracy looks very good indeed, as these VR units are already very precise and latency free.
Using the Vive HMD, motion controllers, and three new Vive Trackers, Orion can produce a high quality and easy to setup motion capture system that could be used in any room at any time. The software is provided as a service unfortunately, but it is quite reasonable at $500 for a 1 year license.
Orion is due out in Q2 of 2017.
