Björk, The Imaginarium & Unity Team Up For First Live 3D Mocap Stream

This week, Björk presented her new exhibit at Somerset House in London. It's an interactive, immersive VR experience that spans her career and portfolio of VR and films.

As part of the opening of her exhibition, she did a live Q&A with the press. As Björk was not present in London, she wore an Xsens MVN motion capture suit in Reykjavik, from which the data was streamed to a computer running Autodesk MotionBuilder in London. MotionBuilder took the Xsens mocap data and streamed into Unity to render a live character.

This project was done in close collaboration between Unity, Autodesk and The Imaginarium.
