Submission + - Haptics Vest Simulates Punches, Shots, Stabbing (ieee.org) 1

An anonymous reader writes: IEEE Spectrum reports that University of Pennsylvania researchers developed a Tactile Gaming Vest (TGV) that smacks and vibrates as players get shot in a game based on Half-Life 2. Four solenoid actuators in the chest and shoulders in front, plus two solenoids in the back, give you the feeling of a gunshot. In addition, vibrating eccentric-mass motors clustered against the shoulder blades make you feel a slashing effect as you get stabbed from behind. If this kind of vest could be linked to a movie while you watch it, the experience would be that much more exciting. Or as one of the creators put it, “So every time Bruce Willis gets shot, you feel it.”
