New Tech by OptiTrack to bring Skeletal Tracking to Multi-Player VR Experiences

A decade ago, OptiTrack started selling its 3D tracking solutions into multiple industries. VFX companies have been using their tracking tech & solutions for quite some time now, through motion-capture suits, etc.

When Oculus & HTC Vive came out, the company realized they could use and commercialize the same tech to VR Companies.┬áÔÇťOculus and Vive have both very good trackers ÔÇö but they are limited to room-scale,ÔÇŁ said OptiTrack Chief Strategy Officer Brian Niles during a recent interview with┬áVariety.

OptiTrack’s body sensors promise whole-body skeletal tracking, which sounds perfect for VR Arcades and other multiplayer venues. Attached to your hands and feet, it is said to provide accurate positional tracking, emulating┬ámovements, such as aiming a weapon or peeking around a corner, much more naturally.

Can’t wait to try them on!
