Immerz’s Full Sensory Immersion Gear let’s you “feel” games

Today at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, tech start-up Immerz displayed new Full Sensory Immersion Gear, which has touch-feedback hardware that wraps around your neck.

The tech has two paddles resting on your chest, allowing for physical feedback when you make something explode in games. This also works when watching something earth-shattering in a film, and also allows you to feel every monstrous boom a drummer creates in your favorite song.

The core technology behind the gear, the KOR-fx platform, is being labeled as “acousto-haptic”, claiming gamers can use it to gain “competitive advantage” as you’re going to be “playing better” the more you feel you’re “inside the game”.

Immerz’s technology works with any device that has audio output, and the focus on the breast area is due to “imperceptible vibrations” that occur naturally in the chest cavity when “crying, laughing or speaking”.

The product will launch in May for $189.99.

    Jock Strap for PC users.
    Anal plug for 360 and PS3 users.

    Wii users don’t need anything as they aren’t in any danger of being drawn into the game.
