Created by the “smart” T-shirt E-skin. It will be the first step to clothes of future.
Xenoma Team, a company of modest size, created a curious T-shirt E-skin, allowing to monitor each movement of its owner. Areas of application of the gadget are diverse: training, treatment, rest and so on. The E-skin has built-in flexible sensors with sensors. With their help, the muscles are stretched and the body moves. Position in space monitors the breast-mounted module, equipped with a gyroscope and an accelerometer.
Machine wash does not harm this device in any way. It can be worn, as and well as our usual clothes, which is distinguished by its lightness, subtlety, and stretches.
There is a chance that smart clothes will become something in an alternative to everyday clothes. With her help, people will be able to control games, plunging into virtual reality and communicating there with objects with usual gestures. Applying E-skin, you can also treat people, say, control their posture. This gadget is also useful in sports, especially if you need to monitor the accuracy of movements, for example, in gymnastics, running or during weightlifting.
You can connect E-skin using Bluetooth to any device running on Android or Windows. Subsequently, iOS and macOS will be supported. Nowadays, though, the device does not very pulls the games. The video test demonstrates a slowdown in tracking movements, which is about a second, which is a lot.
Xenoma offers an SDK for accessing e-skin capabilities in Java, Visual C #, Unity and Unreal Engine applications for MacOS and iOS, as well as Universal Windows Platform (UWP) for use with Microsoft HoloLens. The special feature of the Xenoma SDK is the availability of machine learning functionality and the ability to integrate with the Google TensorFlow library.
