OBE melds the digital and physical worlds, blending fashion and technology to create a fully immersive gaming experience.
The company’s first product allows users to feel and control themselves within virtual reality, seamlessly integrating motion sensors, directional control and full-body haptic feedback into a single garment.
The OBE software development kit is compatible with industry standard development platforms, including Unity, Xcode, and Android Studio, and is expanding to new applications such as drones and robotics.
The OBE Team
OBE is Linda Franco and Antonio Perdigon’s third venture together. Antonio has been an entrepreneur all his life, starting his first company at the age of 17.
Linda was named one of Forbes’ 30 female entrepreneurs under 30 in Mexico in 2014.
Antonio and Linda met in 2008 while studying at Centro Design College in Mexico City.
After launching fashion lines for FIT New York, Mercedes Benz Fashion Week, HYÉRES International Festival France and Christian Louboutin, they started their first wearable tech company in 2011, which would go on to become OBE.
When you think of virtual reality peripherals typically “fashionable” is the last word that comes to mind. OBE immersive gaming is looking to change that.
