Virtual reality users looking to take their immersion to the next level, may be interested in a new haptic feedback suit specifically designed for virtual reality applications called the Teslasuit. Created by a team of VR dedicated developers and designers the Teslasuit, is the “world’s first full-body smart apparel” and can be used for both virtual reality and augmented reality applications. Features of the VR haptic suit include, motion capture and climate control which enables users to feel hot and cold environments within VR games and experiences.
The Teslasuit haptic VR suit currently supports Unreal and Unity3D Engines and comes with full support for developers during the integration process. Teslasuit VR haptic suit features include :
• full body haptic feedback system which provides users with a sense of touch and presence in a digital world, based on electrostimulation
• climate control system that provides heat and cold sensations
• motion capture
• and is absolutely wire free
Teslasuit will be demonstrated at next year’s CES 2018 electronics and technology show providing a first look at the VR and AR experience and showcasing its modular design that allows the virtual reality system to create the sensation of touch and simulate the feeling of the weighted objects in a virtual world. Dimitri Mikhalchuk, CEO of Teslasuit Project explains more :
We wanted the Teslasuit to erase the difference between the virtual and the real worlds. The gaming market, entertainmentand enterprise in VR and AR are currently the natural applications for this technology. Also, as this is smart clothing, it willwork well for day to day life and well-being, for example in sports training and fitness. But, we see its potential future use in a variety of different sectors including manufacturing, automotive, healthcare and medical fields in particular for use in rehabilitation, biometric data set building, collection and data management.
The Teslasuit has been created using modular technology. The advanced haptic element recreates the sensation of touch and simulates the feeling of the weight of objects in a virtual world. Motion capture provides a 2-way communication in a VR/AR environment, gesture control and position tracking. The climate component transmits the temperature change in adigital environment and simulates a range of temperature sensations.
