The potential applications of immersive virtual reality systems are increasing with the current market being beyond the traditional gaming sector. Virtual Reality can be used for information visualization in industrial sectors. Teslasuit is the world’s first fully integrated smart clothing apparel. It is equipped with Motion Capture, Climate Control and Biometric Feedback systems.
On the other hand, the defense sector can use virtual reality to create simulated environments. This will help to train soldiers, pilots, and crisis response teams for situations that are too dangerous to use live equipment.
Due to this technology like automotive, manufacturing, healthcare, education, rehabilitation, and many others are expected to incorporate virtual reality and haptic technology driving the VR market growth in an exponential way. The Teslasuit uses modular technology. The advanced haptic recreates the sensation of touch; it also simulates the feeling of the weight of objects in a virtual world.
The suit’s 64 haptic points across the body can simulate sensations all the way from a feather-light touch, to a hard punch. The motion capture feature provides a two-way communication in a VR/AR environment, gesture control, and position tracking. The climate component transmits the temperature change in a digital environment; it simulates a range of temperature sensations as well.
To make the virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) experience complete, all of the body’s senses should be involved. By including trans-cutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS or TNS/EMS) and high-precision motion tracking the Teslasuit has completely achieved the non-invasive immersion into xR. This technique is primarily used for therapeutic purposes. In gaming, it’s also used to improve and magnify the total immersion virtual reality experience. The results blur the line between virtual and real worlds.
