Medical force feedback vest tweaked for gaming

Filed under:

Over at the E for All Expo, doctor Mark Ombrellaro is demonstrating a medical feedback vest altered so that it works with video games. When an in-game character gets hit or shot, the gamer wearing the vest feels “pneumatic thumps” to their torso. Originally designed for remote medical inspections for prisoners and the elderly, the “3rd Space” vest will cost $189 when it launches in November, and will include an unspecified version of Call of Duty, along with a custom title. TN Games, the company that is suiting up the vest for gamers, plans on launching a version of the vest to simulate G-Forces for flight sims and racers later on next year.
