High Fidelity Integrates HTC Vive Trackers
High Fidelity announces an integration between High Fidelity’s VR platform and HTC’s Vive Tracker, allowing full-body motion capture for social VR experiences.
High Fidelity Enables Full-Body Motion Capture
High Fidelity implemented HTC Vive Tracker configurations that support a variety of motion capture options. High Fidelity integrates the trackers with its inverse kinematics system to create real-time, realistic avatar motion inside Virtual Reality, allowing several people to interact with each other or as part of live performances.
“The future for VR will fulfill the promise of completely lifelike communication at any distance,” said Philip Rosedale, CEO, High Fidelity. “With the Vive Trackers, the capture of the detail and nuance of body language is now possible for the first time.”
Within the High Fidelity VR platform, the HTC Vive trackers can be used without the Vive headset, this enables a wider range of possible uses in Virtual Reality that include social interaction, musical performances, acrobatic maneuvers and more.
When you attach the Vive Trackers to your shoulders, chest, hips, or feet, they can capture all the elements of natural human motion and replicate them inside Virtual Reality experiences.
“The Vive Tracker dramatically cuts development time by offering an easy way to capture motion control data within VR,” said Daniel O’Brien, GM US, Vive. “High Fidelity’s investment in motion capture using the trackers will help to further development for a host of VR categories from social applications to entertainment.”
