Smart apparel company Xenoma has launched kickstarter project for their e-skin pre-consumer version to create camera-free motion tracking user experiences. E-skin apparel incorporates stretchable sensors and electronics to detect the user's movement. It provides a new intuitive and immersive input for interacting with virtual reality content and games.

E-skin apparel also provides means for analysing exercise and athletic sports while maintaining the comfort, durability and machine washability of a regular shirt.

Xenoma has started their kickstarter project to provide a new, open source platform for more people to create and share user experiences. "Our e-skin is quite useful and insightful for recognising what kinds of activities the wearer is doing without being constrained by a camera," said Ichiro Amimori, co-founder and CEO. "We believe there are a variety of needs where e-skin can provide a solution to satisfy and help people."

Xenoma’s e-skin and software developer’s kit (SDK) supports application development on Java SDK, Visual C#, Unity and Unreal Engine for MacOS and iOS as well as the Universal Windows Platform (UWP) to interface with the Microsoft HoloLens. Xenoma’s SDK has also incorporated machine learning functionality though their data and movement visualisation tool which plugs into Google’s TensorFlow, an open-source deep learning library.

The e-skin pre-consumer version will be provided to the first 100 people for a backing amount of $479. This version has the same level of functionality for end users and individual developers as their e-skin developer’s kit for enterprises. A special edition cybernetic design will be available as a kickstarter exclusive. Xenoma has set a target of goal of raising $50,000. The project will run until September 6.

Xenoma 'e-skin' includes an e-skin shirt, an e-skin Hub and a license for using the e-skin software development kit (SDK). The e-skin shirt has 14 strain sensors and the Hub has a 6-axis accelerometer and gyroscope. The Hub transmits information to a smartphone, tablet, laptop or PC via Bluetooth and has a Micro USB port for re-charging. (SV)
