Hey guys,

 

We've created a world first gaming system that measures force. We are currently funding on Kickstarter. We're just after some feedback, and hopefully some involvement from you (if you like it, no pressure).

 

The Realm System uses resistance to measure energy expenditure/force. What this means for gaming is that for the first time the amount of physical effort you put in directly affects the outcome of the game. Whether it's slaying zombies, punching professional boxers or throwing a brick The Realm System accurately gauges how much effort you've put in and replicates it in the game. We've tweaked it so it's compatible with the Oculus Rift making for an even more immersive experience.

 

Outside of pure gaming it's potential applications in the fitness/health industries are wild. We see huge potential in injury rehabilitation, and stroke recovery for example, as the system is able to tell you which muscles and joints are active and working and to what degree. It's crazy in depth feedback that hasn't been seen before. Our ergonomic handheld IMUs (inertial measurement units) track hand and body movements, precisely measuring the positions, speed and direction of those movements. Combined with resistance and a unique algorithm, the system delivers incredibly accurate biometric information.

 

 

Our SDK is compatible with Unity3D. An integration package is provided within the developer kit to quickly and easily start building applications using the Realm System.

It is cross-platform, open source and compatible with Mac OSX, Linux and PC. The system works using the Kinect camera and can also work with Extreme Reality software enabling any webcam to track the body's motion.

 

If you've got a minute we'd really appreciate if you could have a look at our Kickstarter and hit us up with any feedback you might have. 

Also if you've got any questions about it we have our resident developer genius Pierre here to answer anything that might pop up. 

 

Thank you!

- Sophy
