Description

We all want a little more realism in our video games, thats the goal right? So what better than actually feeling a *thud* against your chest or side or shoulder when you get fragged in a first person shooter?!? That's what TN Games is offering us all. They've created a vest that recreates the forceful impact that a bullet would. But how real can it really feel? Really real. Take a look and see.

    Actually, they've got a helmet coming out soon that they will show at CES. They let us try that out, I found getting shot in the head more than a little disturbing.

    That's cool a cool piece of kit Laura, I have always wanted something like it, rumble simply just does not cut it and is dire in comparison. Directional impact sensing IS the future. I would love to use this for a whole host of games, especially CoD4 multiplayer and Crysis. Did you ask if a 360 version is a possibility or in the works?. It would be great to use on that with the number of FPS and driving games it has on the platform. I reckon you guys at Microsoft should have made one of these things ages ago anyway. Pneumatically driven bladders is a very cool idea I look forward to see how TN develop this technology. Feeling bullets enter and leave the body sounds freaky, and you looked freaked out by it lol.

    Thanks bunches Smiley

    PS- Where the hell is Tina!?!
