Cerevo Makes Virtual Reality Shoes a Reality

When it’s deliver-or-die, supply chains become the lifeblood of a company. To that end, the fashion industry has embraced technology to navigate today’s hyper-complicated supply chain, with myriad solutions shaping the first, middle and last mile. Call it Sourcing 2.0.

Cerevo, an electronic manufacturer in Tokyo, unveiled Taclim, the first-ever virtual reality (VR) shoes and gloves with haptic feedback on Tuesday.

The shoes and gloves made their debut at CES 2017 in Las Vegas, where Taclim demonstrated the prototypes through a new game developed by PlayStation VR.

The VR set, which features a nine axis sensor that captures the wearer’s movements, detects movements as input and translates them into in virtual reality, creating a real-world feeling. By allowing the VR user to feel reactions in their hands and feet, the wearer becomes more involved in the VR world.

The VR footwear and gloves will be available to consumers beginning in Fall ’17 and will retail for $1,000-$1,500.
