TN Games who make software and hardware devices for gaming have created a unique gaming vest. The FPS (First Person Shooter) 3rd Space™ Vest for gaming has been produced for gamers to experience the realism of hits and impacts of a game on the body! The vest fits around the body and is connected to your gaming device via USB.
The vest then lets the 3D gamers feel the pounding hit of body slams, blasts from bullet fire, punches and G-force hits no longer restricted to the rumble or buzz of previous devices. This is a complete re-definition of game play.
This technology originally created for doctors to check patients via remote link has now been used for this vest. It has air pockets that are are pumped up by a lightweight compressor based on the action in the game, including the direction of bullet fire simulation in the vest. The pistons pumping the air by the compressor can hit you with up to 10lbs force of air.
You can also buy add-ons which include covers for arms and legs and a helmet too that all connect to the vest to give the game a ‘full body experience.’
In addition to this version, TN Games have also produced a vest for flying and driving games – the the 3rd Space GFR Vest which is for Ge-Force/Racing and also, the HXT Helmet which is stands for Head and eXTremities simulation. Where the gamer can feel the complete experience of the drive of flight in the game via the vest. The vest pockets for acceleration fill with air quickly and when slowing down, the back pockets of the vest produce the opposite effect.
