Play your games and control your apps with haptic feedback (available for PC, Mac, Linux, Android, iOS and Oculus Rift). Real VR. What is iMotion? Do you know how in SciFi movies the hero sometimes controls the floating interface of a device with just a flick of his hands? Well, that's what we built. Our iMotion controllers provide a revolutionary way to have the pinpoint-accurate 3D motion control across an incredible range of existing platforms and applications. How much does iMotion cost?
With the backing of this Kickstarter campaign we will be able to offer the iMotion controller for an unbeatable price. Starting at just $49 (for early birds), you can be the proud owner of one of these amazing devices. 
There are multiple packages available to suit your needs and even developer packages, which grant you access to our team and support forum early. iMotion also features airtouch (haptic) feedback, which is a unique addition to the motion control experience. Both of these features make iMotion truly unique and all that at an attractive price point. Where can I use iMotion? iMotion creates a virtual touch screen, similar to a giant motion sensitive space in front of you. iMotion's unique haptic feedback feature provides physical feedback so you can "feel" a virtual object being touched inside a game or application. Any computer that can be controlled with a keyboard and mouse and a standard webcam can be controlled with iMotion. You can play First Person Shooter games or fighting games, or interact with 3D applications using your hands to move, open or rotate, and drag and drop 3D objects with high precision.Use your body or your hand to control movements in virtual worlds. And, there's no integration required! Just install our middleware on your PC/Mac/Linux computer and game away! How do I use iMotion? Simply strap the iMotion controller to your hand, similar to a glove, and you are ready to control your PC or mobile with intuitive, natural gestures. The iMotion controller is compatible with your existing games and applications, and allows you to replace your keyboard and mouse commands with gesture controls. All you ned is the iMotion controller and our free toolkit (downloadable from our website).it does iMotion offer for developers? Use our Unity component to unveil new user experiences for your gaming content and applications. For Oculus Rift, by using our Virtual Hands SDK, you can even let users have hands in your virtual world (if you pledge for two iMotions, you get early access to this feature of the SDK). In most cases, no significant modification of the gaming content or application is required, just integration of our Unity component with input/output functions!What is so revolutionary about iMotion? 
The iMotion controller has three LED lights to establish the body's position in 3D space. It determines the x, y and z coordinates as well as the angle of rotation and plane of elevation. iMotion houses a gyroscope and accelerometer, so you can use it at any angle and achieve a very high level of accuracy for action games and applications.With an operational range from 1 to 16 feet, it's the only motion controller that supports full 3D motion control. iMotion works with any standard webcam. At 30 frames per second and an astounding 0.08 in accuracy, it is 6 times faster and 10 times more accurate then the leading console's motion tracking system.For PC/Mac/Linux, the iMotion simulates the mouse so users can access any application in motion control mode, without any integration.`
The touch feedback technology built into iMotion uses bluetooth to send a signal to a haptic vibro-sensor in the actual controller. This allows you to get instant feedback, and adds "feel" to the virtual screen in front of you. There are 5 unique feedback channels that can change intensity and duration to provide different levels of feedback to replicate the unique "feel" of an object, movement or incident in the virtual 3D space. imotion v2, imotion video ,apple motion, istopmotion, inmotion, imotion app,imotion ecig,imotion camera This is impressive technology, but how easy is it to use?
If you can work a velcro strap and plug in a cable, you're good to go. iMotion is slim and sleek and attaches to any part of your body using velcro straps. It is small enough to fit in your pocket and carry around. Why not take a couple of controllers to your friends house, connect your mobile phone to a TV and play together?
