The Sony Mocopi is a character-specific motion capture device selling for $358

Recently released in Japan is the Sony Mocopi, a character-specific motion capture device. To combine avatars and create short animated films with the Mocopi, users must wear six sensors and connect them to a smartphone.

The six sensors in the Mocopi allow it to keep tabs on the user’s head, left and right wrists, waist, and left and right ankles. The smartphone is then used to sync the user’s movements with the avatar’s skeletal structure. Because of these syncs, the Mocopi doesn’t require any supplementary gear for motion capture. Characters may be created in no time, and data on their movements can be sent to other 3D animation programs. You may use the Sony Mocopi Receiver Plugins with programs like Unity and MotionBuilder, as well as VMC, which is Sony’s own virtual motion platform.

The Mocopi software allows the user to record their own voice and apply facial expressions to the digital avatar. At present, you can get your hands on the Mocopi mobile apps for iPhones and the Xperia 1 and Xperia 5 series from Sony. The list is sure to grow in the coming years. For its 8g of weight, each Mocopi sensor has a lifespan of 10 hours.

The Sony Mocopi has been given water and dust resistance ratings of IPX5, IPX8, and IP6X. It can still be used by the public even if it starts to rain.

The Sony Mocopi will cost 49,500 Yen (about $358) when it goes on sale in Japan in January 2023. At this time, there isn’t enough information about pricing and availability around the world.
