Vidya is a concept for an augmented reality (AR) wearable that provides real-time AI feedback for Yoga students, giving users a more complete and empowering yoga experience. The solution seeks to inform and enhance the yoga experience, for users of all experience levels. Users begin by selecting a class to attend using the Vidya app, customizing the level of guidance and feedback received. They can attend live classes remotely or attend time-shifted classes from anywhere in the world, or they can participate in an AI coached session locally. Vidya's AR glasses allow users to see their poses in real-time and implement adjustments on the fly, regardless of head position. They also display vital information like breathing & duration of pose. The AI assistant provides audible suggestions and visual guidance to improve form. Paired sensor modules capture users’ motion from 2 angles to provide accurate real-time body positioning and feedback from multiple views. The companion phone app also allows users to set goals, track progress, manage their schedule and share interesting yoga moments with friends.
