  • Buy this USB vest and feel every gunshot wound in game

    Any risk takers? :) I'd love to see a video review on this product by a TG member.

    How painful? I can't imagine something like an explosion or dieing in a vehicle using this.

      It comes in pink for DrBeat!



      But I think it would put wrinkles in my crisp dress shirt and sweater vest combo.

        I would wear it but my damn squad mates would intentionally TK me so that i feel the pain!

          I thought we play games so we DON'T feel actual pain!

            Hmm. Good thing they've deemed it necessary to bring back dumb ideas from the Genesis years.

                I had an office chair like this about 15 years ago, and it was pretty cool, but terribly uncomfortable, with a hard back that didn't recline. The vest implementation would be both more comfortable and more adaptable to individual shape and sitting style. I recall how nifty it was playing Half-Life and feeling the crossbow bolts hit me.

                BTW, this thread should probably be in Hardware and Software. Perhaps a moderator would move it?

                  This is taking things a little to far if you ask me. There's realism and then there's way to much of it to the point it becomes real.

                    It's no different than 3D video or surround sound.

                    Besides, we need this kind of realism if teledildonics is to become a reality. :p

                      Meh, it's a tad bit expensive no?

                      Besides, it's not like it's going to kill me every time my character get his head blown off or a bullet blow his heart out the other side of his virtual body. :p

                          I like it. The fact that it is only $139 and can be used in many situations (unlike say Track IR) is also a plus.

                          Personally its a novelty item and only really for a niche audience. That audience deserves some love and if they got the dough why not?! Using it in PR or Arma II would really make you think twice about getting into situations where you can get shot. I would NEVER use it in TF2 or something else... those games you are supposed to get shot in...

                            Post #8 coming right after post #7 is the highlight of this thread.

                            The vest seems pretty silly to me.

                              Yeah, I invest in new hardware to improve performance and hopefully give me an edge. If I wanted a distraction while playing I could get my neighbor's son to smack me on the head with a wiffle ball bat for free.
