If you are interested in Virtual Reality you will find the Teslasuit Project on Kickstarter very interesting. One of the biggest obstacles with Virtual Reality is that there is no resistance and feedback while you are playing a game or immersed in a Virtual Reality experience. The Teslasuit project on Kickstarter aims to counter this VR shortcoming with the Testlasuit that they are busy developing.

The Teslasuit aims to become the world’s first full-body haptic virtual reality suit that lets you feel what you play.

It is a revolutionary smart textile virtual reality gaming suit that allows you to interact with virtual environments providing resistance feedback. The Teslasuit electro-tactile haptic feedback system aims to give Virtual Reality users the ability to touch and feel objects inside the virtual world.

How does the Teslasuit work?

According to the developers of the Teslasuit and the project details which are currently on Kickstarter. The Teslasuit transmits sensations to the wearer’s body by neuromuscular electrical stimulation (NMES), which is widely-used in athletic training and rehabilitation. It is very similar to our own body “native language” and is also used in Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS) belts and other well-known devices.
