This video shows the YEI 3-Space Sensor product family that was demonstrated at the Institute of Navigation conference held recently in Nashville, Tennessee.
Using 17 sensors and three wireless dongles, motions from an actor can be applied to a mesh in real-time and used to interact with virtual scenes rendered in the Unreal Engine. Adding a head-mounted display to the suit provides an immersive first-person experience with highly accurate head and body tracking.
