Sony’s New Metaverse Bet: A $360 Wearable Device That Tracks Your Movements

The new Mocopi system consists of six pucks worn around the user’s wrists, ankles, head, and hips to animate avatars within various metaverse applications running on Sony Android or Apple Inc. iPhones. The Mocopi kit, priced at 49,500 yen ($360) and coming in Japan in January, expands the company’s virtual and augmented reality efforts.

Tokyo-based Sony has exerted significant effort to expand its gaming empire beyond its traditional dominance in console games by introducing more accessories for PC and mobile gaming. The firm also has the PlayStation VR headset and a successor in development, both of which are intended to establish an ecosystem of virtual reality (VR) experiences along the lines envisioned by Mark Zuckerberg’s Meta Platforms Inc., the company he renamed.
