MUMBAI: One Digital Entertainment, India’s leading digital video and creators network, joins hands with Holosuit to bring mixed reality using AR/VR technology to the creators’ world for the first time ever! Through the marriage of their content with AR, VR, AI, ML; One Digital Entertainment has entered into a new league ensuring the enhancement of the viewing experience especially for the character plays and storytelling by bringing the real and virtual world together.

Holosuit which is the world’s first ever affordable, bi-directional, wireless and easy to use full body motion capture suit, acts as a bridge between the virtual & real world. It is a full-immersion sensor and feedback packed jumpsuit which allows you to point, touch and feel 3D objects creating a 4D  immersive experience, which is being reported (by Forbes, NY) as game changing technology enabling whole new generation of mixed reality applications. It contains options for multiple embedded sensors and haptic feedback devices dispersed across both arms, legs, and all ten fingers combined with embedded buttons. Capturing the user’s entire body’s movement data and using haptic feedback, it sends information back to the user for scenarios including neuro-rehab, sports, healthcare, education, gaming, entertainment, skill development, automobile, factory training, disaster response, robot training, defence or industrial operation etc.  It is compatible with Android, Windows, and iOS, HTC Vive, Oculus and similar AR/VR/MR platforms. It is a wireless platform and comes with an SDK which provides developers with infinite possibilities of creating real and virtual applications.

“AR/VR technology is going to open up a whole new world of digital content creation and will enable creators to enhance their creative prowess. This amalgamation of technology and creativity will bring a new content category altogether and creators will be able to produce content which was so far only possible by large and expensive studios with complex editing. I am quite excited for this tech driven collaboration, says Mr Gurpreet Singh, COO, One Digital Entertainment.”

I believe that our full body motion tracking enabled suit will be able to create the space for the creative minds to grow their experience manifold. Holosuit virtualizes your body and simulates the real world environments allowing immersive mixed reality experiences. I believe that creators can imbibe such experience with their ideation, and start creating a new league of content which was not possible earlier. I look forward to work with One Digital Entertainment, says, Harsha Kikkeri CEO of HoloSuit Pte Ltd.,

Holosuit has already launched two versions of their suit a few months back. It lets you feel the virtual experience throughout your body with sensors and haptic feedback devices that send vibrations to your body when a VR application sees fit.

Earlier, Holosuit had raised several rounds of investment. It has achieved significant growth in the last few months with a current round of investment at USD 35 Million and is radically taking multiple industries like, Automobile, media and content, Healthcare, Gaming, and Sports etc. by a storm! It also recently won the Elevate 2018 Startup award from Government of Karnataka which granted it up to Rs 50 lakhs and has also recently tied up with cricketer Yuvraj Singh.
