Date : 2020-02-26
The CES2020 was held in January and there's a Korean company that received the innovation award for its wearable technology for virtual and augmented reality. The Korean startup company called TEGway became the world's first company to develop the flexible thermoelectric device (FTED). The FTED can be used while playing VR and AR games and users can feel hot, cold and even pain, thanks to the temperature sensory device. TEGway's FTED won the Netexplo award given by UNESCO in 2015. On this week's #Korea 4.0, we take a closer look at the flexible thermoelectric device and we'll also try out some products. In addition, we'll see what kind of changes the FTED will bring in the near future.
