So much technology packed into a thin and unassuming piece of rubber
Sensor networks draw virtually no power, bringing to life the possibility of wearables that run on ambient energy or small coin cell batteries for the life of the product.
Our soft sensors can be configured to measure bending, stretching and pressure. We can spatially discretize these measurements to create “bend pixels”, which allows us to measure the many nuanced ways that we move and interact with our environments. Zero drift, negligible hysteresis and a high level of accuracy sets a new standard for sensor performance.
Bend technology is waterproof and can withstand the abuse of daily life as well as machine washing and drying. You can rest assured knowing that you can treat your Bend Enabled apparel and wearables the same way you treat all your other clothes.
We’ve taken our sensor technology and leveraged it to make a glove that brings true high fidelity hand presence to augmented & virtual reality without sacrificing comfort. The intrinsic durability, drift free and highly accurate nature of our sensors allow us to make the first AR/VR glove that “just works”. Our AR/VR glove tracks every single finger joint angle (20 degrees of freedom) in addition to absolute orientation (3 rotational degrees of freedom).
The addition of low profile haptics to the fingertipsfinger tips allows you to have natural interactions in AR/VR and let’s you do what feels natural, which is to use your hands. We’ll be announcing development kits for our gloves soon, so stay tuned!
