This jacket improves immersion in virtual reality Virtual reality relies on immersion of the player, by definition. You can go even further with Hardlight VR Suit, a jacket supposed to give you even more the impression of penetrating into a virtual universe. This jacket developed by NullSpace is a project launched on Kickstarter which starts from a simple principle: to make you feel on the body what happens in
Unlike the few existing systems,VR Suit goes much further by covering almost the entire upper body. The shoulders, chest, bars and forearms as well as the back are covered with a haptic device that makes you feel with great realism when you have been touched. The jacket allows to feel physically a great number of sensations such as a punch, foot, arrow, the blade of a sword, the blast of an explosion, a ball see even the rain in virtual reality.
Do not physically feel a shot during a fighting game or shooter is one of the important problems of video games whether they are RV or not and which comes to spoil some immersion. Hardlight VR Suit allows the player to physically feel the feeling of being touched in a specific area of his body thanks to various haptic devices wisely positioned in the jacket. An elaborate system of localized vibrations makes it possible to feel a blow on the whole affected area.
But the Hardlight VR Suit jacket goes beyond just feeling when you’re hit. Indeed, the jacket is equipped with a system of sensors that greatly improve the tracking of the player. The position of his body, the head or his arms and hands are faithfully reproduced for even greater realism, especially in close combat sequences. The system of trackers allows to faithfully reproduce the hands and arms of the player in virtual reality, which is often very approximate with a classic tracking system.
NullSpace VR, the project’s start-up, launched a Kickstarter campaign to finance the production of its haptic jacket, the first of which will be delivered in September 2017. The NullSpace VR team has convinced investors, Only a few days, more than $ 130000 were raised, far more than the goal of $ 80000. It should be noted that fifteen games are already compatible with the jacket. Hardlight VR Suit works on HTC Vive and on Oculus Ri
