Movement tracking garment by Xsens Technologies, used for Couture in Orbit project.
From video games to blockbuster movies to the International Space Station, the movement-tracking technology of Dutch company Xsens Technologies is playing an important role.
The ESMOD Berlin fashion scool students are working with the MVN Biomech product, which is a full body suit incorporating 17 separate sensors, similar to a skater’s suit. It’s pretty comfortable, but a tight fit, because the sensors have to stay at the same point in order to capture useful motion data.
The product can be used to modify the garment a model is wearing when seen on TV, to try out different clothing on your body, or even to switch models as they move across the catwalk.
