Motion Recall, established at the beginning of 2016 by four partners from Leti and Delta Drone, is developing a GoPro-type action cam with novel virtual reality features. Users can film activities like hang-gliding and mountain climbing and later interact with the video footage, choosing an alternative viewing angle, adding real or fictitious characters to the scene, changing a person’s movements, and sharing the results locally or remotely. This consumer product leverages a decade of research in motion sensing, virtual reality, biomechanical models, and data processing and fusion conducted at Leti and List. The startup has signed an R&D contract with the CEA for 2016. By end-2018, the company will count 60 employees and will release its first camera, to be priced between €690 and €790.
