Haptic vests let you feel bullets and knives

Haptic technology as entertainment continues to progress with the introduction of the ‘Tactile Gaming Vest’ (TGV), which allows video game users to experience the bullets and knife slashes that they recieve on screen during the game.

The TGV is mounted with solenoids that strike you (for bullets) and vibrating motors (for the knife slashing sensation) that respond to cues from the game and let you feel what your character feels on the screen. Palan hopes to give users a ā€œ4-Dā€ experience, with tactile feedback providing the extra dimension of immersion.
