Motion capture systems such as the arena optitrack are meant to be set up in a room and maintained. What happens when you get asked to set it. After some disagreements with mr K Duyves we settled on a plan, and here it is- the Octopotator. This system lets you connect 6 motion capture cameras in minutes, just hang them up and plug them in- mo messing around with sync chains- want more cameras, add another box, easy.
This was developed for the Potator 3D drawing system, for more details go here.
