This ‘E-Skin’ smart shirt turns your torso into a video game motion controller #WearableWednesday #CES

Via The Verge:

Japanese startup Xenoma might just have cracked the secret to making successful smart clothing, and it involves a ludicrous skin-tight Spider-Man-style shirt, 14 sensors, and a running mini-game that’s as goofy as it is fun. The company’s “E-Skin” technology, which it debuted at last year’s CES, basically turns your torso into a motion controller, so your body movements act as software inputs for games and other motion-based apps. It uses a Bluetooth module that plugs into the center of your chest to transmit the data from the sensors to a nearby PC or smartphone running Xenoma’s custom software.

This year at CES, Xenoma is back with its signature smart shirt more refined than its previous model, in addition to two new prototype products in the fitness and healthcare realms. It being both silly and wildly fun makes Xenoma’s E-Skin product more fascinating than any piece of smart clothing I’ve seen before
