E-wearable Gaming Platform to bring you out of the virtual world

Exploring the potential of wearable gaming platforms, two design students from Utrecht School of the Arts, Christiaan Ribbens and Patrick Kersten, have come up with a gaming platform dubbed the “Woven: E-wearable Gaming Platform” that connects to a mobile phone, running an app, via Bluetooth to control sensors and display. Integrating bend sensors and a heart rate sensor for bio-sensing, the gaming garment makes use of speakers, haptics and the 144 RGB LED display as a major mechanism for feedback.

The E-wearable Gaming Platform may bring users out of the virtual world by instigating them to engage with the real world and solve real problems, but the placement of the controls in the chest area may cause inconvenience for female players.
