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.
Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.
Looks like the final product, but is not functional.
Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.
Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

HoloSuit is the world’s first affordable, lightweight, bi-directional,
wireless and easy to use full body motion capture suit. With options for 26 or 36 embedded sensors and
9 haptic feedback devices dispersed across both arms, legs, and all ten fingers combined with 6 embedded buttons - HoloSuit captures the user’s entire body’s movement data and uses haptic feedback
to send information back to the user, for scenarios including sports, healthcare, education,
entertainment or industrial operations. Given below are 2D renderings of 3 unity avatars which are examples of avatars which will controllable through the HoloSuit.
An XR 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.

I was struck by the HoloSuit’s low latency — Kikkeri’s movements were reflected on the PC nearly instantaneously — and equally impressed by the fidelity. Even subtle motions like a flick of the wrist or shrug of a shoulder didn’t escape the sensors’ notice - venturebeat.com
Low-cost full body mo-cap suit (& gloves!) w/ haptic feedback for #VR #AR #MR is here! I've tried it. It's good. Very. Most Kickstarter projects are a roll of the dice, but not this one. @Kaaya_tech @thevrvoice @haptical @joemich @ForbesTech @EthanRasiel - Forbes Columnist Charlie Fink
Holosuit is a full body motion capture suit that uses haptic feedback to let people truly enter the VR world for gaming and sports while allowing training for situations like medical and military. - Forbes.com

Allows you to capture and replay your body movements.
We aim to provide further more applications through categorizes such as
The complete set consists of 36 motion tracking sensors, which we have tweaked it into tracking not only your motion but the raw data such as angle, acceleration...
our product offers a wide variety of features such as
The HoloSUit compromises of 9 haptic exciters which will allow you to feel actions and bring out a whole new level of immersion.
It is Wi-Fi enabled allows remote collaboration with any person around the world through it.

It has cloud syncing feature that allows the user to back up their saved data in the cloud as backup and share them to other people to view as 360 degree videos with full body analytics and ability to zoom, pan, tilt, analyze joint angles and forces etc.
HoloSuit is compatible with -
unreal engine 4
Holosuit captures your entire body motion including fingers, head and foot and can transfer it to an avatar or robot in real-time. This allows humans to operate humanoid robots leveraging the same tools which are built for humans in fire fighting, nuclear disaster, hostage rescue situations. Holosuit Pants with foot extension enables the robots to even climb stairs.
Holosuit comes with options for 26 or 36 embedded sensors and nine haptic exciters distributed across both arms, legs, and all ten fingers combined with six embedded buttons.
Holosuit allows you to replace expensive and time consuming Motion Capture studios with real time creation of full body animation. You can combine Holosuit body motion with facial tracking features of smart phone and create full-fledged animations.
Holosuit Golf can train you in the Virtual world and records your motion in the real golf course. You can even share this full 360 recording with your coach who can play, pause, rewind, zoom,change camera angles and get full body analytics of your golf drives. We are working with former India National Cricket Team Coach to virtualize cricket coaching.
HoloSuit Yoga is a cross platform app which allows the trainer or student to store various yoga poses. The student can then play back these poses and follow them while wearing the HoloSuit. If there is any mistake in the pose, haptic exciters closest to the discrepancy will vibrate - gently guiding the student back to the correct pose without even needing the display. Sports/Fitness Trainers can even observe and correct the student as she is doing the pose in the same virtual space by interacting with their avatars through haptic exciters.
We are working with 10th Dan of Karate in Okinawa to virtualize HoloSuit Karate training
Holosuit is already getting deployed for upskilling of Factory workers in steel industry and training of defense personnel on latest equipment at a fraction of the current cost.
Holosuit is being embraced by Indian Government or virtual training of paramedic personnel for disaster response training scenarios.
The training can be done in mixed reality - where the trainee's movement in real world is translated to virtual world or virtual reality - where buttons can be used to simulate movement.
HoloSuit has gathered a lot of interest and has over 60,000 followers in facebook. It is already tested in over 6 countries - France, UK, Canada, US,Vietnam and India for multiple domains.
1.Nuero surgeons are working with it to help their patients understand their movement limitations and retrain their minds.
2. Bollywood and Hollywood directors and animators are working with it to recreate virtual orchestras and do motion capture at fraction of the cost of normal capture studios.
3. Former Indian National Team Cricket Coach is looking at it for creating virtual cricket academy.
4. Factories are planning HoloSuit deployment to train and attest skills of their workers on latest equipment virtual reality/ augmented reality before letting them operate expensive equipment
5. National Disaster response teams are looking at it to train their teams in virtual reality on Nuclear, Chemical , Biological Disaster Responses.
6. Architects are planning on using it as the 3D interface of choice to construct entire buildings in augmented reality onsite by using the 3D point feature and buttons to select and place different parts of buildings. 7. Doctors in Vietnam are planning to use HoloSuit to help their students conduct virtual surgeries and provide real time feedback.
Our team is comprised with highly skilled professionals who are excited about leveraging virtual world to improve our lives in real world through HoloSuit. Know more about us at HoloSuit.com
Risks and challenges
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 world-class 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 Velcro - 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.
