A suit which offers virtual sense of touch & feel

A wireless suit made of smart textile clothing fully integrated into a virtual reality system can now deliver to the wearer the sense of touching and feeling in the virtual world.

From the warm breeze of a summer’s day to the sudden impact of a bullet, the sensation of touch will be realised without vibration or noise in a textile that is not bulky or intrusive and can be worn like normal clothing.

This garment comes from Tesla Studios which announced the development of the patent pending ‘Tesla Suit’ technology.

The Tesla Suit performs a dual role as a motion capture system (fully wireless without the need for external devices) and a state of the art smart textile, incorporating thousands of nodes to directly stimulate sensation and pleasure in the skin through tiny electric pulses.

This will deliver to the wearer the sense of touching and feeling in the virtual world. From the warm breeze of a summer’s day to the sudden impact of a bullet, the sensation of touch will be realised without vibration or noise.

The full body Tesla Suit consists of a belt (with a central control unit) together with modular units – haptic feedback gloves, vest and trousers – and will be fully compatible with existing virtual reality headsets such as the Oculus, Google Glass and META Space Glasses, as well as consoles (PSP, Xbox), PC and smartphones.

All the modules are independent units fully compatible with each other – as the user collects these modules together they will form the full body Tesla Suit. Tesla Studios said the first ‘Tesla Suit’ modules will be available in mid 2015.

Tesla Studios is a team of developers and designers expert in micro-controller programming, augmented and virtual reality and is registered in the UK with a product R&D branch in Belarus. (AR)
