Default Joint Reflectors

You all know those high dollar reflectors that game industries use to make animations? Like somebody will wear a lot of reflectors on their body and then move and the computer will show the reflectors as joints and records it as an animation.

I was wondering how much something like that would cost.

Or does anybody have a link that talks about them?

yes he does mean that, I think...??? But for what I know, you need a high definition software, a light/color tracking software... etc. That crap would add up, but my guess (not having researched or anything) about $1, 000 - $2, 000 or maybe more???
