HoloSuit Pte Ltd, an AR, VR, AI, ML based tech start up, has raised an undisclosed amount of funding from three eminent investors i.e. Shabir Momin (Serial entrepreneur), MD & CTO, Zenga TV, Rohit Nanda, Singapore based established infrastructure sector focused equity investor, & Mohammed Sirajuddin, Co-Founder of Creators Gurukul & Partner at Catapooolt.
The investors identified Holosuit at Catapooolt product Czars Grand Finale, which was India’s largest Crowdfunding powered Product Innovation Hunt.
Harsha Kikkeri is the CEO of HoloSuit Pte Ltd., where he is building HoloSuit – An AI enabled full body analytics platform with world scale tracking which acts as a virtual trainer for your body and mind. Holosuit virtualizes your body and simulates the real world environments allowing immersive mixed reality experiences. Holosuit has recently unveiled the world’s first affordable, bi-directional, wireless and easy to use full body motion capture suit tracking everything from head to toe including your fingers.
Holosuit acts as a bridge between the virtual & real world. It is a full-immersion sensor and feedback packed jumpsuit which allows you to point, touch and feel 3D objects creating a 4D immersive experience, which is being reported (by Forbes, NY) as game changing technology enabling whole new generation of mixed reality applications. It contains options for multiple embedded sensors and haptic feedback devices dispersed across both arms, legs, and all ten fingers combined with embedded buttons. It captures the user’s entire body’s movement data and uses haptic feedback to send information back to the user for scenarios including neuro-rehab, sports, healthcare, education, gaming, entertainment, skill development, automobile, factory training, disaster response, robot training, defense or industrial operation etc. It is compatible with Android, Windows, and iOS, HTC Vive, Oculus and similar AR/VR/MR platforms. It is a wireless platform and comes with an SDK which provides developers with infinite possibilities of creating real and virtual applications.
“We aim to take XR (VR, MR, AR) to the next level and enhance our user’s virtual experience. We focus to provide the best of technology at the most affordable price to our patrons. Holosuit weaves together mixed, virtual, augmented realities with fashion and fitness tech by tracking your body metrics in real time which the world is referring to as “Ready Player Two”, since it goes beyond the SciFi Ready Player One suit by allowing you to control not just virtual objects, but real world robots as well. I believe, this association will strengthen our business & tech strategy. Their sharp business acumen will help us in scaling up globally. I am also thankful to Catapooolt for creating a great platform to support the Product Ecosystem of the country” says Harshavardhana Kikkeri, CEO, HoloSuit Pte Ltd.
“There is no doubt in my mind that AIs are going to become super smart sooner than we think. It is arguably the most exciting field in robotics today. Harsha has dedicated significant amount of his life working on AI and building robots for Microsoft and I see a lot of potential in Holosuit. We need such technology to be embedded into our system to create maximum beneficial outcome. I believe, experiencing the virtual/real life scenario is much needed to solve many problems in today’s time, says Rohit Nanda”.
“AR/VR technology is changing the perception the way every day task is being operated. Holosuit is not just merely meant for gaming but the technology used in it can be effectively used in the other real life situations like health care, military, industrial purpose, training, and other sports activities. I have always been intrigued by the latest technology. I am quiet thrilled to be a part of such an amazing platform. I look forward to work with the team and aspire to set the new benchmark”, says Mr Shabir Momin, MD & CTO, Zenga TV.
Holosuit has already launched its two versions of suit few months back. It let you feel the virtual experience throughout the body with sensors and haptic feedback devices that send vibrations to your body when a VR application sees fit.
