xenoma eskin mimics user's arm movements immediately on screen

 

 

xenoma inc., unveiled its new ‘eskin’ at berlin’s IFA 2016 technology convention. the japanese company has developed wearable technology to monitor a user’s motion, respiration, and body temperature remotely without the use of cameras. since the electronic compression garments debut at CES 2016, developers and users have taken notice of its ease of use and comfort for free-form motion capture applications.

as the immersive multimedia gaming market continues its growth path, software developers and system integrators will need a user-friendly solution to freely track motion in any environment. xenoma’s ‘eskin’ aims to be the very answer. using four sensors per arm, the garment can monitor a user’s motion necessary for fluid and accurate representation in a variety of game simulations without the use of cameras. arm movements are then translated onto the computer screen by a three-dimensional character that would look right at home in a video game.
