 The Best Headcam for Indie Developers

Professional Facial Motion Capture, on Any Budget.

Our GoPro Headcam kit gives you a professional look, fit, and feel, at a price that makes it easy to get started in facial motion capture. Capable of recording in full-HD and up to 120 fps, the GoPro Hero 5 Black is robust and adaptable for tracking at the resolution and speed your project demands.

Building your own headcam is time consuming, frustrating, and can come out looking like a science experiment gone wrong. Our hardware experts have used their years of expertise to design a GoPro Headcam that works intuitively with Faceware’s acclaimed software suite.

Every GoPro Headcam System includes an HDMI to USB 3.0 video converter, allowing immediate video feed into both our Live 2.5 or Analyzer 3.0 software.  Get ready to control characters in realtime or start tracking right away—all from the comfort of your desk. No memory cards needed.
