Kickstarter underway for suit that lets you feel virtual reality

This is the stuff of science fiction, right down to its seemingly snug-fitting look. A Kickstarter campaign has been launched for Teslasuit, a garment you don to help you feel in a virtual reality world.

The Teslasuit is a full-body haptic outfit that puts pressure on your body so that whatever you’re watching or playing is more immersive. A Bluetooth-connected T-Belt controller is worn around your waist, which then translates instructions into neuromuscular electrical stimulation (NMES) for your body.

The makers of the Teslasuit state that the suit features 52 interaction points. The sheer number of points, according to the makers, sets it apart from other haptic feedback solutions. Apparently, the suit will be capable of replicating anything from a bullet hit to a warm hug. We know which we’d prefer…

The full body suit will cost you £1,199 and delivery is expected in December. The Teslasuit team has set a target of £250,000.
