As artificial reality and virtual reality become more immersive and natural, many fantasies like experiences are turning into realities. One player enabling this is the bi-directional flagship HoloSuit, which has 40 embedded sensors for arms, legs and fingers, tracking a user’s array of movements and playing them in the digital outcome.  

 

This product essentially creates a digital twin of the body and when it interacts in a digital interface, a person can experience everything very closely through the sensors and technology instilled in the suit. 

 

As the company grows, Harshavardhana Kikkeri, the Founder and CEO of HoloSuit explains that the company is also building HoloWorld, a metaworld that hosts phygital (physical and digital) metaverses in education, sports, robotics and security. 

 

Virtual vs Real 

Motion capture, holographic projection, extended reality (XR) interaction, volumetric capture, humanoid robotic and embodied artificial intelligence (AI) technologies are disrupting the metaverse. This is also what HoloSuit has put into play. 

 
These technologies are powering experiences and allowing anyone, from anywhere to experience the unreal in real. HoloSuit is a business-to-business player that charges for building the metaverse experiences and also charges a percentage of the revenue generated from the experience. 

 

The startup is funded by Yuvraj Singh Ventures and has generated revenue from building cricketing experiences in sports metaverse, robotic experiences for security and phygital lab experiences for the education industry. HoloSuit, as the company calls it, is the interface of the future. 

 

“We are growing gangbusters and have already shipped to 19 countries around the world. We are getting more enquiries than we can handle and are rapidly doubling our team every few months,” says Kikkeri.  

 

As an entrepreneur, HoloSuit’s Kikkeri stresses that the focus should be on first adding value to the customer rather than looking at returns. He says, “Always look at giving 10 times the value and you will get 100 times back in returns.”
