“KinaTrax’s marker-less motion capture system can provide pitching and hitting biomechanics data in games. Beginning with the 2020 season, users will be able to access that information in a new mixed-reality environment while the game is still being played.
Software engineer Javier Olaya led development of KinaTrax AR, which will use a Magic Leap One to enable athletes and coaches to replay in-game data in an immersive environment. KinaTrax produces a skeletal recreation of pitches and swings, and those avatars will now be rendered with real-life scaling. Users can overlay multiple swings or pitches—the skeletons will appear in different colors—to look for differences in mechanics.”
