We started this company because we love data and we love learning and exploring the environment. We solve real problems for real people by giving them access to meaningful and accurate data on how their bodies move. Enflux is a spin-off of the term "influx". Influx means "act of flowing in".
Why Motion Capture Clothing?
We're making motion capture simple and practical for everyday use. Enflux Clothing is for animators, game developers, virtual reality, sports, and health.
Our sensors and electronic components fit seamlessly inside everyday clothing and communicate with smartphones and computers through bluetooth. The Enflux developer kit costs only $499 (shirt, pants, and free SDK access), compared to professional motion capture systems, which cost up to $200,000.
The Enflux Team
We are innovators, engineers, designers, and scientists. We push boundaries to advance technology beyond our wildest imaginations. We enter markets that are highly competitive because competition spurs creativity and innovation. Small details really count.

How It Began
Enflux began when Doug and Eli, former college roommates, made sensors to analyze motion in racecars. Doug was training for a triathlon and got injured. He started studying running form and realized he could use the race car sensors on his legs to collect data while running. That’s how the idea was born!
