These cheap wooden headphones got me pouring high quality audio

Given my job as an audio copywriter, it’s hardly a rare occurrence that a pair of new contenders for our best headphone roundup arrive on my desk and go over my head (for me – I don’t need a servant for everything). ) and continue to envelop me in a glorious sonic bubble for several hours.

Sony is ready to capture motion in the metaverse, but only in Japan

Sony is experimenting with the metaverse with new motion capture devices known collectively as Mocopi.

Comprised of six color-coded sensors, the Mocopi system targets key parts of a person’s body (head, hips, wrists and ankles) using Velcro straps or a clip to capture movement via a dedicated smartphone app. With this technology, users can control an anime-style avatar in real time to create videos or hang out with people on supported metaverse services like VRChat🇧🇷 It’s similar to a big Hollywood-style motion capture system, but without dedicated equipment or operators. Sony hopes Mocopi will help content creators “involved in film and animation production” and facilitate development in key areas like fitness platforms, according to the announcement.
