Sony's wearable motion trackers bring the metaverse to smartphones


With just a sensor and a mobile app, Sony's Mocopi can easily track the movement of the whole body.

Sony has released a line of wearable motion trackers that use smartphones to transport users into the metaverse.Six pucks are included in the Mocopi system, which the user wears around their wrist, ankles, hands, and hips.On iPhones and Android phones, these sensors will be able to animate avatars in various metaverse apps.These motion trackers, according to Sony, will go on sale in Japan in January of next year for 49,500 Yen (roughly Rs 29,222).

Users can capture full-body motion capture without requiring costly equipment with the Mocopi system.The Mocopi motion trackers are primarily intended for YouTubers and content creators.Sony is basically expanding the market for the metaverse, which is still in its infancy, with the Mocopi system.The low-cost phone accessory is a great way to experience the metaverse, a 3D version of the web in which you can interact with digital surroundings in real-world settings.

Sony and Meta, which was formerly Facebook, are expanding their horizons in the metaverse.Immersive virtual reality (VR) headsets are sold by both businesses, with Sony's PlayStation VR device geared specifically toward gamers.The leading Japanese technology company recently announced that it will begin selling the PlayStation VR 2 headset for $550 in the early part of the following year.

Meta is making significant investments in augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR).In point of fact, it has transformed the company's focus from social media to the metaverse.Meta hopes that VR headsets will eventually replace smartphones; it has sold 14 million of them.Meta invested $10 billion in the "metaverse" business alone last year, and it continues to invest billions in Mark Zuckerberg's dream project.
