AR, VR, MR & Smart Textiles

End-User Experiences & Applications 1 Replies

 

The excitement around augmented reality (AR), virtual reality (VR), and mixed reality (MR) has reached a fever pitch. The continued development of device capabilities has fueled real-world applications. We've seen companies like Teslasuit and Xenoma Inc., with e-Skin, develop garments that enrich the virtual experience. 

 

Do smart textiles offer a unique value proposition to these enhanced visual systems? What is the value of adding biometric data to greater contextualize the user experience? What about heating/cooling simulation? Or "touch"?

 

Is it all hype? Are we just scratching the surface of what's to come?
