NEW YORK: Organic Motion, a startup that makes motion-capture software used by Disney, Intel and Sony, among others, has raised $7.4 million. The Series B round was led by the Foundry Group in Boulder, Colo., bringing Organic’s total funding to a reported $10 million.

The company’s technology is used for gesture-based computer control and real-time 3D tracking without the use of body suits or attached devices. The software is said to create a “digital clone” of an individual. Users include animators, the military and athletes.

“We are fortunate to have the Foundry Group as partners who share our vision for next generation human-computer interfaces,” Organic Motion CEO Andrew Tschesnok said. “This investment will act as a catalyst to our continued growth as we expand our sales network, and build on our award-winning intellectual property.”
