WHAT IS SUPERSUIT
SuperSuit is the World's First Wearable Gaming Platform. It is made up of a SuperVest, SuperGlove and SuperBot.
The SuperVest is its power core which acts as the target. It lights up, makes sound, and has haptic feedback letting you feel when you get hit.
The SuperGlove is the tool to activate special abilities. It’s ENGage gesture technology gives you the power to unleash shock waves, generate force fields, and many other SuperPowers.
Inside every suit is a special SuperBot which act as allies zapping your opponents, boost your defense, or be the goal of the game.
Stocked full of a variety of games at launch gives SuperSuit the ability to be experienced single or multi-player. With SuperSuit, the more you play the more powerful you become. Instead of leveling up a character, YOU level up. Rewarding you with new powers and gestures as your abilities increase. And tracking those powers is done in the app where you can monitor current level, compare scores and active minutes, and download new games.
WHY SUPERSUIT SuperSuit came out of a frustration of seeing how technology had ignored kids' play, specifically outdoor play. Screens are so powerful that they end up making kids passive and in the name of 'interactivity' all that kids end up doing is tapping the screen few times to move the narrative forward. All the so called 'future of gaming' tech of VR & AR are for adults. SuperSuit brings tech to outdoor play for the first time, without kids having to look at the world through a screen! Their bodies become the 'controllers' & the environment overlaid with an active imagination is the 'screen'.
It is backed by gritty entrepreneurs passionate about creating an active & balanced childhood, part of the Fortune #40under40 business leaders, with an experience of selling half a million units of physical games and hailing from CMU & IIT.
HOW DOES IT WORK
SuperSuit uses new Zi-Fi technology to communicate suit to suit, so they work anywhere. Zi-Fi had to be created to make SuperSuit truly screenless. SuperSuit doesnt need a phone or PC or a WiFi / Bluetooth connection to be around. With Zi-Fi you can take these suits to a park / beach or even a desert and they'll start talking to each other instantly OTB.
The second part, which is the ENGaGE gesture engine, unleashes the magic behind all the "superpowers", from activating Force Fields to unleashing Shock Waves with a swish of your hands in superhero style!
SuperSuit previewed its new look at TechCrunch Disrupt amidst much excitement. It was invited to speak on Connected Play at the prestigious Digital Kids Summit (San Francisco) and showcased at the INK conference (Goa, India).
We've also been busy zapping the Bay Area with SuperSuit play sessions everywhere! Over the last couple of weeks alone, 600 kids of all ages have experienced SuperSuit.
