Teslasuit has been named a CES® 2019 Innovation Awards Honoree in Virtual and Augmented Reality. The announcement was made during CES Unveiled New York, an invite-only tech event bringing together top media, exhibitors and industry leaders for a sneak peek of the products and trends expected at CES 2019.
Teslasuit is the world’s first full-body haptic suit that enhances virtual and augmented reality experience through synergy of haptics, motion tracking, and biometry. Haptics is proven to increase immersion and improve learning. Motion tracking connects a human body with a cybernetic environment and is essential to the delivery of haptics.
