It may sound like science fiction, but it seems that the company wants to take the exoskeletons Forcetek with motion detection systems to households through a device called XIO. Needless to say he wants to compete with Natal, Move and the Wii Remote.
According to Ryan Christoff of Forcetek, “XIO is made of a lightweight material and has resistance modules to transmit the feeling of punching the opponent in a boxing game.” XIO theoretically could be used to do gymnastics, but “it is easier to enter the video game market in this.” However, time will tell if the business expands.
On June 15 XIO Forcetek will announce at E3, for which use a PC. The first item is the glove of the photo below, but eventually there will be parts for your shoulders, back, lower body, and head. “We wanted to take the attachment of the shoulder to the fair, but it is a very complex joint and will have to wait.”
Not much is known over XIO, but Christoff said to be a very competitive price.
