Described as the "ultimate tech in smart clothing," the Teslasuit is an innovative haptic wearable based on technology widely used in the medical field. Equipped with 68 haptic points across the body, the Teslasuit manages to simulate sensations ranging from a feather-light touch to a hard punch across the body. The haptic sensations provided by the suit come bundled with the suit as does software that allows users to create their own effects.
The Teslasuit is perhaps one of the most advanced haptic suits currently available for developers and it works to address a fundamental issue with VR. While visual immersion has almost been mastered, sensations across the body are still quite distant. This is where the Teslasuit comes in as it attempts to give VR users a sense of space, sensation, and orientation with haptic feedback.
