Can one's body be used to control a video game? The answer is yes, apparently. But the smart clothing Japanese startup Xenoma designs isn't going to inspire a new generation of blockbuster video games.
The E-Skin shirts have sensors that pick up the movements of your upper body, including arms and torso, and translate any movement into on-screen action. That sounds a bit silly, and you’ll look ridiculous trying to control a game via the smart shirt you’re wearing. But E-Skin tech, combined with the right kind of apps, could transform the way you exercise at home or outside.
