Full Body Motion Capture for starting at $25,000! Affordable, tethered tracker for capturing human motions. MotionStar is the most cost-effective means of tracking full-body motions in the world today. Developed with animators world-wide, MotionStar is a "turn-key" motion-capture solution when purchased with appropriate animation software and workstation. It comes in a fully-integrated enclosure with a fast Ethernet interface to your computer.

The rack-mounted chassis houses all electronics and a high speed interface to your host computer. Each sensor is connected to the chassis by a 35-foot cable and can be bundled together for unhindered performance.
