The Japanese Electronics giant, Sony Group has unveiled its latest product, Mocopi, a set of wearable motion trackers designed to transport users into the metaverse via their phones.
Mocopi is composed of six sensors that are worn around the user’s wrists, ankles, head, and hips. These sensors are used to animate avatars inside a variety of metaverse applications that are run on Android phones or iPhones. The Mocopi kit will be sold for 49,500, which is equivalent to $360, and it will become available in Japan in the month of January.
Motion may be captured with Mocopi without the need for any extra hardware or software. It has the capability of rapidly generating virtual characters and transferring character movement data to third-party 3D animation software.
You may export your animations created in Mocopi for the metaverse and augmented reality using a Sony plugin, which gives you the ability to import them into other tools like Unity and MotionBuilder.
According to Sony, Mocopi will be of assistance to content producers working in the animation and film production industries, such as VTubers (virtual YouTube broadcasters).
