TENZR VR Wrist Bands Are Being Tested at NASA
BioInteractive Technologies announced that two of their TENZR wristbands are being tested in the VRLab Astronaut Training Facility at NASA Johnson Space Center.
BionInteractive Technologies Developed TENZR VR Wrist Bands
TENZR is a wristband that uses custom sensors to detect hand gestures. NASA is currently evaluating its use as camera-free and hands-free controllers for their Virtual Reality training setting.
“We are very excited that our TENZR™ prototypes at NASA’s VRLab could change the way astronauts interact with the virtual space environment! Great strides are being made in the fields of Human-Computer Interaction, and Natural Control. We believe that our natural, hands-free gesture recognition technology will take the field forward and will complement existing technologies like voice recognition and camera-based systems,” said CEO, Lukas-Karim Merhi.
It weighs 45 grams, and it is a revolution in user experience because it frees the users’ hands from controllers and doesn’t require much training. It also features UNITY3D compatibility, which makes it a plug-and-play solution for any Virtual Reality platform.
BioInteractive Technologies is also developing custom solutions for healthcare and home automation based on the same technology used in the TENZR. HABIT4 will allow users to control their home appliances and the GRASP will aid in stroke-survivor rehabilitation.
