Move‘ is a tech-enabled garment prototype from electricfoxy that guides the wearer towards optimal performance and precise movement. The garment has 4 stretch and bend sensors in the front, back and sides, which analyze your movements in real-time and can deliver quick feedback if they are incorrect. Haptic components in the hips and shoulders provide what feels like a subtle nudge in the area of your body that needs adjusting.

Tech-Enabled Garment Nudges You When Body Needs Adjusting

This wearable tech would be useful for all sorts of daily activities, sports and expressive movement, such as yoga, golf, baseball, physical therapy, interpretive dance, and ballet. Data from the garment is sent to a mobile app, which allows you to assess, manage and customize your experience. Using the app, you can track your performance over time, see where you’re improving and see what areas need adjustment. You can also set goals on the types of movements you want to improve and customize the moves to your needs. You can check out the project video below:
