If you’re a gamer you’ve certainly wondered what it would be like to immerse yourself in virtual reality. This day in age, that doesn’t have to be left to the imagination, because after a successful Kickstarter campaign, the company Sixense released The STEM System, a 3D modular motion tracking platform for video games and virtual reality.

The STEM System enables players to naturally and intuitively interact with games by tracking full position and orientation, no matter if it’s at a desktop or throughout an entire room. It supports up to five wireless motion tracking modules, called STEMS, for full position and orientation tracking of the head and hands, the body, or other configurations. STEMS can also be clipped and strapped to the body or any chosen device using a STEM Pack.
