CES, every year leads to many interesting and attention grabbing products that aim to change the way we look at technology. Keeping up with the tradition an IIT Mumbai alumnus Rajat Dhariwal, who has founded a game design company, MadRat Games in United States, has unveiled a unique wearable gaming platform that comes as a first in the gaming industry.
The wearable that goes by the name of SuperSuit is a gaming platform that intends to limit the screen time children these days spend playing online and other games on computers. The new gaming platform will encourage the children to increase their social interaction and indulge in physical activities which is need of the hour.
Rajat Dhariwal calls this wearable gaming platform as the “Future of Gaming” and goes on to say that it will help the children to shift from screen dominated games.
He further stated “For children, outdoor play is already the favourite mode they are unable to do that due to shrinking outdoors in cities & urban spaces and restrictions on them due to safety concerns in suburbs. There is a growing feeling of restraint & lack of freedom, and kids can claim that freedom back with SuperSuit,”

So it is first of a kind wearable gaming platform that has been launched and has grabbed some serious attention from the tech enthusiasts.
