TIME revealed its annual list of the Best Inventions, and we are honored to announce that our haptic vest: Skinetic, is recognized in the Metaverse category!
This recognition is given annually to innovations in different categories that are helping to build a better world.

TIME evaluated each contender on several factors, including originality, efficacy, ambition, and impact.
We are honored to announce that our product: the Skinetic vest, was selected for this year's edition!
