A surprising device appeared on KickStarter. A whole body haptic suit and from none other than Elon Musk’s development folks.
(you know the SpaceX and Tesla car guy).
While it does look a bit expensive, I’m sure there are just enough developers to back this and make it a successfully funded campaign.
The fact that there is this much R&D into haptics before a official retail release of a Head Mounted Display says a lot about the state of the industry. It makes the whole thing seem that we will see very good products by the 3rd gen of products in less than 6 years. When there is more computing power in consumer hands.
Take a look at the KickStarter Yourself.
