The Tactile Gaming Vest (TGV) doesn't just react when you get shelled in a game. It transmits a different sensation depending on the kind of hit you take. Talk about augmented reality.
The TGV is a haptic feedback device that uses solenoids, eccentric-mass motors and Peltier elements - all controlled by custom electronics and a personal computer - to give users the ultimate immersive experience:
When the player's character experiences injury in the game, the vest simulates the appropriate sensation (bullet hit, vibration, and/or heat) in the correct location on the player's body.
It's not the first feedback gaming vest, but it's the first I've seen that distinguishes between a gun shot, a slash and a pewpew. The TGV's still in the development stages with some kinks to be worked out, but the potential for both gaming and movie-going is pretty incredible.
