TuringSense is a Campbell, California based company. It has successfully raised $3 million in a proper seed funding.
The funding was done for the company’s idea to design and produce a wearable sensor for tennis enthusiasts. But Turing is also planning to enlarge the wearable capacity to other sports and after the successful completion, lastly into health-care sector.
The campaign was supported by five basic and generous donors,
- Angel Plus,
- ChinaRock Capital,
- SV Tech Ventures and,
- Zen Water Capital
Apart from the above-mentioned names, some angel investors also supported the cause. Turing will use the donations to oversee the marketing and researching. The first development and designing will be based on company’s first product launch named as the Pivot.
Limin He, co-founder and CEO of TuringSense, explained in a statement that the quality to attract the attention of the well-known and famed companies for investing is the testament of the upcoming technology. The fascinating connection of multi-sensors and high-speed full body speed analysis is the highlight of the product.
He further said that;
This funding gives us the financial strength to advance our goals of revolutionizing the way sports are played, practiced, and coached by transforming training methods that enable athletes to optimize technique and prevent injuries.
The new wearable Pivot consists of a system that has numerous built-in sensors and an app. A total of fifteen sensors are necessary for the tracking of full movements. The users will have a choice to wear few sensors if they want to focus on enhancing their footwork strength or any other specific area during a game.
The sensors are capable of tracking your movement without installing camera and directly send the data to the cloud-based server. The users can then see their data and consult with the trainers, doctors and coaches, whoever is concerned.
As mentioned above, Turing’s future plans involved indulging into different sports and them finally into the healthcare sector.
Andi Boediman, managing partner of Ideosource, said in a statement,
TuringSense’s great initial entrance with its tennis application illuminates the company’s overall vision of expanding to other sports and VR/AR gaming. TuringSense has the capability to tap into the Asian game development community, which has been a substantial driver in supporting gaming companies around the world.
The company’s website claims that the Kickstarter campaign for Pivot will launch this month.
