Xsens, Xsens Gloves by Manus, XMG, and The Virtual Dutch Men are supporting Project Myron, a VR experience developed by students from Saxion University of Applied Sciences.

Project Myron was created by an ambitious team of students at the Saxion University of Applied Sciences. In it, players can see and interact with other virtual characters in a VR environment. The group worked in collaboration with mocap and VR technology leaders to make Project Myron a reality, with support coming from Xsens MVN suits, along with tech from Manus VR, XMG, and The Virtual Dutch Men.

An exclusive demo of the full-body mocap VR experience will be shown to the world at this year’s FMX.

Xsens Indie Program
Xsens recently launched a new initiative designed to democratize the use of its Hollywood-grade motion capture solutions, specifically for indie developers and universities such as the Saxion University of Applied Sciences. The Xsens Indie Program exists to support inspiring up-and-coming talent. It provides indies, student teams, young studios and game devs with access to Xsens’ production-grade mocap technology at an entry-level budget.

Exclusive preview at FMX
Project Myron is due for completion in July 2017. An exclusive preview of the project will be presented for the first time at the FMX festival in Stuttgart, Germany on the 3rd of May from 11:00 – 12:00 in Raum Karlsruhe.

You can follow the project progress on Facebook and Twitter.
