Dexmo transfers your hand movements to the digital world.

Kickstarter over the years has harbored and successfully brought more ideas into the commercial industry unlike anything else. The Virtual reality head mounted display Oculus Rift is a good example that proves the point. Oculas Rift started of as a $2.4 million project on kickstarter in 2012 and now its a company worth $2 Billion.
But we are not talking about Kickstarter or Oculas Rift here, we are talking about another revolutionary idea in the Virtual reality scene, called the 'Dexmo'.

Dexmo is a hand wearable exoskeleton that input your hand movements into the digital world and outputs force feed back to your finger so you feel the object in the digital world.
Dexmo is a project developed by Dexta Robotics, a robotics start-up based in Shenzhen, China.
Well the technology is not something very new. We have had countless university and academic projects that are quite similar to this. However what sets this itself apart is the fact that its going to be affordable to buy and cheaper to build. Its designed for mass production, its not just a prototype its developed on principle of DFM (Designed-for-manufacturing).
