The Teslasuit Makes Virtual Reality Come To Life

A common depiction of virtual reality (VR) in cyberpunk and near-future science fiction involves the user wearing a full-body rig to allow them to be truly ‘present’ in the virtual environment. The Teslasuit Project brings this idea out of the realm of science fiction and into the real world. The suit offers a full-body haptic feedback system which can simulate a sense of touch, a climate control system provides sensations of hot or cold, so users wandering the cold mountains of The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim VR can feel the icy chill, while casting (or receiving) fire spells will cause blasts of heat. Plus, the Teslasuit is completely wireless.
