      Hi Neil,
      Thanks for the encouragement and detailed feedback. I agree with all your comments and they are all work in progress. We are taking the product through a rigorous design for manufacturing process *before* launching the kickstarter, so that I don't have to keep delaying the product delivery. You will see high quality video and professional close up of the HoloSuit very soon. A HoloSuit Simulator is also getting ready which will allow you to develop and test the experience on all VR/MR/AR devices using Kinect along with sample Unity HoloSword game and avatars. Regarding hand and finger, the same tech can easily be extended to incorporate them. Look forward for your continued support!

      Hi,
      This looks like it will be a great product that will solve a lot of problems in VR and has to potential to enhance VR/AR/MR experiences. I would suggest shooting and editing a new video. The sound in the current one is not very good. It has a lot of background hiss. Also, it would be nice to see a few close up shots of the material and how the sensors and electronics are incorporated. The suit looks comfortable and it would be good to see larger movements, but it makes me wonder if there are any plans to produce gloves for hand and finger tracking. The speed of the arm movements is great and it shows that there is very little lag or latency. Finally, if you can choose a more neutral location for the video it will offer a more professional presentation. I'm looking forward to a successful launch!

      HoloSuit exposes BLE SDK, so you can use it in any game engine.
      The HoloSuit Sword game will be in unity and will showcase experiences on VR/MR/AR devices. The SDK backers will get male and female unity characters as well whixh they can use in their game/app development.

      Hi there - what gaming engines is this integrated with? I sent a note on your blog post too; looks really interesting!

    5. Kaaya Tech Creator on February 11, 2017

      Thanks for the feedback Cheryl.
      Multiple sizes will be available. There is a simple BLE SDK which will allow a lot more games/applications in many verticals to be developed on Samsung Gear VR, Google Daydream, Microsoft HoloLens, Oculus RIft, HTC Vive and even Magic Leap and any head mount that Apple builds! More first party apps are also planned after successful kickstarter launch like HoloSuit® Yoga, HoloSuit® Tennis etc.

      Sounds cool! Is their gonna be different sizes or is it gonna be one size fits most?
      Also, are their gonna be more games than those two games?

What is a prototype?

A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Proof of Concept

Explorations that test ideas and functionality.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

About

Do you feel like Virtual Reality could be so much better if you could just use your natural body motion to manipulate objects in the virtual world? Feel frustrated with the limited field of view and having to constantly move your hands into field of view just to select the objects? Getting Girafe neck by having to move your neck around just to select virtual objects. Feeling weird that your mind is in the virtual world, but the body has been left behind and actually starts getting in the way of the awesome experience?

Your dreams of actively experiencing and controlling the virtual world have just come true. 

Introducing HoloSuit - A VR Game suit which tracks and trains you in the real as well as virtual world . It is a smart track suit which has  sensors embedded in them to track your every move at lightning speed. You can use the track suit either independently or while wearing an augmented reality, virtual reality or mixed reality display or viewing the avatar on an external display. The motion of the user in the real world is tracked, stored and virtualized. 

Two games will ship out of the box to showcase the awesome experience - HoloSuit Saber and HoloSuit Golf. 

HoloSuit Saber is a VR game which allows you to hold a real saber in your hand and put on the VR headset(Hololens, Samsung Gear, Oculus Rift) and fight other Knights. The Knights appear in the virtual world and the game can track the real sword movement and use it to provide a breathtaking experience actually being in the fight. If you are wearing a mixed reality device like HoloLens, you can even move around. You enemy can come from behind and you can use your arms and legs to fight them without even looking back to first get them in your field of view! This is the holy grail of VR gaming.

HoloSuit Golf works both in the real world and the virtual world. You can  relax and play 18 hole golf at your home using the VR headset. You can also go out to the real world and play golf while wearing the HoloSuit. The HoloSuit stores all your body motion during the golf game. When you come back home, you can review all your golf in the VR world and see where you can improve. Future version will include golf trainers to help you improve your real world golfing by analyzing your body motion.

Risks and challenges

Risks
1. Tracking technology just doesn't work!
Mitigation: A full prototype was developed to demonstrate the working of the technology as shown in the demo videos. You can clearly see that the 3D avatar follows the motion of the person wearing the HoloSuit.
2. The technology cannot be miniaturized and fit comfortably into the track suit design.
Mitigation: A lot of work has been done to ensure that all aspects of the technology works in the miniaturized form. The schematics and board layouts have been verified and they have been sent to flexible printing also to validate end to end working.
3. The track suit is not designed properly
Mitigation: A worldclass fashion designer with significant sportswear experience from Columbia Sports has designed the fabric to blend the technology and fashion. A lot of experimentation has been done with conducting threads, conducting hooks, conducting velcros - you name it, we have experimented with it! Many iterations of product development and design has happened to find the best design for the track suit. The flexible circuits and conducting thread placement has been exhaustively thought out.
