Ever wonder what it would be like to be a character in a video game? Well now you can experience what your player feels while playing. The KOR-FX gaming vest was developed so that the wearer can feel different types of vibrations, such as what it would be like to feel explosions in a game of COD or the pulsing in your body from quick footsteps while running. Video game fanatics everywhere cannot get enough of this device. They state that it adds another element to the idea of virtual reality and it really makes you feel as though you are actually in the game.
This device can be used for other experiences aside from video gaming as well. The developer of the product, physicist Shahriar Afshar, stated that he has used it to immerse himself into Bach’s classical music. He said, “All of the sudden I was engulfed in the genius, the amazing indescribable wrapping up of emotions masterfully put together…It opened all these vistas that I had never thought of.” The article below goes into more detail on the uses of the device, but I think that this is an extremely cool, innovative way to really experience alternative realities and take a break from everyday life.
