Beijing, China September 02, 2014


Perception Neuron, the worlds smallest, adaptive and versatile wireless full-body motion capture system for virtual reality, motion capture and visual effects is proud to announce that it has surpassed its Kickstarter fundraising goal of $250,000 with over 800 backers. Perception Neuron has also been selected as a Kickstarter Staff Pick and placed in first position in the technology category on both Kicktraq.com and Kickspy.com.

"The first thing we want to do is thank all of our backers," exclaims Dr. Tristan Dai, Developer of Perception Neuron and co-founder of the company. "Building a project for people that actually care about the outcome and the process is so rewarding and motivating."

Two stretch goals have already been announced. At the $300,000 mark, backers will be able to choose between the Rumbler or the Shutter. The Shutter is a remote control that will allow the user to trigger an action remotely such as start/stop or time stamps. The Rumbler is a special component of the system with audible and vibration feedback. It is designed to provide a form of tactile feedback for VR interaction. Pledgers will get one Rumbler for every 10 Neurons backed.

A second stretch goal of $400,000 has also been released. At this mark, all the Perception Neuron hubs will be equipped with a local SD storage card hub allowing users to perform motion capture independent of a live computer connection. The backers will also be rewarded with a six month license to Perception Axis, a professional version of one of the included software with added features and plugins.

The Perception Neuron Kickstarter campaign ends on September 12, 2014.
