The Perception Neuron 3 is the world's smallest IMU sensor-based, full-body motion capture system. PN3 makes it possible to record motion data anywhere without any space, lighting and environmental constraints.

Perception Neuron 3 is completely wireless and can be used in any condition both indoors or out, without occlusion, cameras or line-of-site restrictions. With a new algorithm, new software, and new API, Perception Neuron 3 offers a robust solution for indie and professional filmmakers, animators, researchers, stage performers, and educators.

Perception Neuron 3 works with Axis Studio software for motion capture.

Record fast, dynamic motions and capture full-body performance with only a minimal setup. Perception Neuron 3 gives you an all-in-one motion capture solution that you can build based on your own workflow.

Axis Studio provides new tools such as real-time environment awareness to identify areas of magnetic interference and data processing to improve capture quality. The intuitive software easily navigates, captures, records, and exports files.

Axis Studio software supports up to 3 performers at a time while managing up to 23 sensors for the body and fingers.

  • Capture and Record Motion Data
  • Export Motion Capture Data to FBX and BVH Files
  • Contact Point Editing
  • Noise Reduction with Smooth Factor Process
  • Free Data Forwarding to Third Party Software
  • Native Integration to Unity, Unreal, Notch, Maya, and more
  • Body Size Preset

Versatile Working Modes

Perception Neuron 3 offers different working modes to fit your needs whether you're doing a twitch stream, full body capture for a film or an animated game animation.

Easy to Integrate

The system is suitable for an array of mocap applications including animation, VFX, game development and stage performance.

Skeleton Selection

Select a skeleton from a variety of software applications like Unreal Engine, Maya, Mixamo, and easily stream or import your mocap data into any rig with the same skeleton.


Noitom Perception Neuron Pro

Designed to be portable, Perception Neuron 3 comes in a travel size EVA case making capturing on the go a breeze. Free of walls, light and occlusion, it is possible to mocap anywhere. ­

The PN3 charging docks are designed to hold and recharge all six sensors at once. Once the sensors' full battery is restored, the charging session ends automatically.

Perception Neuron 3 offers high-accuracy finger tracking. Our unique design gives all creators the ability to create professional-grade captures.


Due to high demand of our PN3 motion capture solution, orders placed today will ship in October 2021
