As one of the most influential tech events in the world, the Consumer Electronics Show held in Las Vegas this week has seen its fair share of unique products and gadgets introduced to the market. As the Metaverse hype is taking the world by storm, one fantastic product introduced at this year’s Las Vegas CES 2022 trade show was Shiftall’s HaritoraX VR leg and waist motion tracking device. Let’s take a closer look at this motion tracking device and see whether it’s worth the $270 investment.
What Is HaritoraX?
HaritoraX is the name of the motion tracking device produced by Shiftall, a subsidiary of Panasonic based in Japan. In addition to its body-tracking suit, Shiftall announced the launch of its 5.2k HD VR headset launching in Spring 2022 with a price tag of $900.
The demo of the device has been available for a few months now, with a product showcase video released in March 2021.
Users can currently pre-order the device for $270, with shipping starting at the beginning of Spring 2022. The demo video shows how the device attaches to your waist, legs, and tracks all your movements in real time.
HaritoraX seamlessly integrates with SteamVR. The device also works with VRChat and Chillout VR. This makes it ideal for anyone looking to improve their VR hangout experience.
According to documentation online, the device works on a chargeable battery that lasts 10 hours. This product is ideal for long VR sessions due to its long battery life.
One of HaritoraX’s competitors is currently SlimeVR’s full-body tracker, which raised over $754k in its crowdfunding campaign with pre-orders available now. Unfortunately, SlimeVR’s products won’t ship until November 30th, 2022.
Compared to HaritoraX’s $270 price tag, SlimeVR has various options ranging from $165 to the $455 deluxe tracker set.
Vive’s trackers are one of the most used options for tracking your legs and waist in VR.
Unfortunately, Vive trackers are pretty expensive, costing $129 for each one at writing. Cost-wise it would make more sense to purchase a HaritoraX for $270 and track both your legs, ankles, and waist, rather than purchasing 4 Vive trackers for over $500.
Full body tracking is a great way to enhance your VR experience. Once the tracking tech gets up-to-speed, it’s certain that it will become a standard in Metaverse.
HaritoraX is a great product for a great price. The fact that it was built by a subsidiary company of Panasonic should increase consumers’ confidence in Shiftall products.
