Seismic, a Menlo Park, CA-based startup, is taking on the wearables market with their fashionable Powered Clothing.
Seismic, who was speaking at the WT | Wearable Technologies Conference 2018 USA in San Francisco, wants you to know that this is not an exoskeleton but instead fashionable clothing with a combination of robotics and sensor technology. The Powered Clothing made its first official appearance at TechCrunch Disrupt, followed up by CES 2019 in Las Vegas.
The Powered Clothing™ integrates discreet robotics, designed to help you move better by working in collaboration with your body to give you strength, stability, and power. The clothing is designed to help people with daily activities like, standing up, carrying and lifting items, extending standing, sitting down, walking and more.
