Description
With e-skin, you can use, recognize and analyze human motion data anytime, anywhere.
Our e-skin apparel unobtrusively moves and stretches with the body’s movements. The proprietary stretchable electronics were developed in Professor Takao Someya’s Lab at the University of Tokyo. E-skin provides a new intuitive and immersive input for interacting with virtual reality content and games as well as means for analyzing exercises and athletic sports. Since it is wireless and camera-free, e-skin can be used for many hours both inside and outside.
