Do you want to be a VTuber/VStreamer? Do you want to do that using your own 3d models, without installing additional software? You don't have any kind of VR headset, but still want to represent yourself to everyone, without exposing yourself? You came to the right place!

This is a very ambitious project in development where I'm learning all kinds of things, and putting all my programming knowledge into practice.

Why am I creating this: Well, I think It's kind of sad to see that, even after all the knowledge and technology out there, there is not such a thing as a low price alternative to stream your own 3d-model. After looking at the market, even the cheapest software I was able to find, you would have to own a VR setup, and we all know that this can be a bit pricey, specially if you're not thinking about experiencing Virtual Reality.

  • So, with all this reasoning behind, I'm putting together a program, developed on Unity, where you can you your everyday webcam to track your movement into your model.

  • Don't have a webcam ready, and you can't afford to buy one? Well, I got you covered too! By tracking your voice, mouse position, keyboard strokes and some animations to make things smoother, you are able to have your own character fully animated and ready to be used for your videos or streams!

  • This doesn't stop here either, a VR alternative is going to be developed, with and without use of the famous Vive trackers! Yes, you're hearing this right, my objective with this project is to give a chance to all kinds of users that cannot afford Vive trackers. After all, your own controllers are already 2 fully working tracking devices that can be used for something that is not your hands. And of course, to the people who already have the trackers, the option of using them shall be given too.

So, to make things simple and clear, what is this project objectives:

  • Desktop Tracking: This mode uses only your voice, keyboard and mouse as tracking systems for your model.
  • Camera Tracking: This mode uses your webcam (or any camera that is usable on your computer) to track your head movements, including blinking. This uses your sound to track your mouth movement (for now).
  • VR headset Tracking: This mode uses your VR devices as tracking. Which part of your model the devices control, is all gonna be picked by yourself. This gives you freedom to have, or not, the typical Vive trackers. This uses your sound to track your mouth movement.
Why become a patron: Well, by having patrons and having some kind of income from this project while developing it, I will be able to make faster progress and keep me motivated, as it will give me freedom to spend more money into this project as i initially intended, to improve its quality.

I still haven't reach that point, but patrons will have early access to updates and test versions, once I get the project to something usable.
Goals
$4.71 of $100 per month
With this amount, I can have way more freedom on the amount I can, and will, spend on this project!
