On this page you can find the current release of the core of Chordata Motion’s mocap system.

Be aware that we are currently preparing the first production release of the system. We have just successfully completed our first Kickstarter campaign, which will allow us to fund the last stage of hardware development and production.

The rewards from our first Kickstarter will be delivered in March 2021. This will also be the date our kits go on sale. We will also be offering a pre-sale of our kits before March 2021. If you are interested in purchasing any of our motion capture kits, you can fill out our pre-sale form.

The sources for our files are available at our GitLab’s online repositories so that anyone with a little bit of electronic and/or coding experience can go ahead and dive into the intricacies of our project.

If you are interested in building your Chordata Motion system from scratch you will find information in our wiki. If you have any doubt, please leave us your question at our forum.
