Twiz modules are the most universal tools for wearable technologies, applications are simply endless but here are a few examples :

  • Media control: modulate sound effects or control a light show from performers’ motion
  • Scientific studies: analyse a building/bridge vibrations, animal activities…
  • 2/3D Software: motion capture to animate 3D model of object, human or virtual creature
  • Games: control your favorite doom-like from your hand, or breakout
  • Anything that a beacon or activity tracker does
  • Home automation: control your room’s light volume by spinning your candle:
