Enhanced Life
This easy-to-use, inexpensive interface system liberates people from sedentary, unhealthy computer work. It is a surprising new concept that changes our assumptions about chairs and interfaces, and promotes a new reality.

To develop a game-interface device that acquires complex movements of a human body in a sitting posture.

This interface technology converts information from an acceleration sensor and a pressure sensor into posture information. Movements of the upper body and the waist are calculated from these inputs and converted into whole-body movements.
