ForceWear Vest



Quote:
REDMOND, Wash.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--TN Games, makers of computer hardware and software products, today unveils ForceWear™ Vest. Video-based content is amplified as players wearing ForceWear Vest are pounded both front and back with hits from rapid gunfire, or experience body slams associated with racecar driving. With ten pounds of force at each of the 8 contact points, ForceWear Vest imparts tactile events and impact throughout game play including directional force to create unending anticipation.

“From the young gamer to the hardened industry veteran, all have been astonished by how much TN Games’ ForceWear Vest amplifies the gaming experience,” said TN Games’ CEO, Dr. Mark Ombrellaro. “We are excited to launch ForceWear Vest at the Game Developers Conference. TN Games’ is redefining the concept of interactive entertainment by combining feedback that is unexpected and thoroughly suspenseful.”

With a customizable-look geared toward shooter and racing games, ForceWear Vest impacts single gunshot wounds, multiple missile gunshot wounds, through and through missile injuries, kicks, punches, and can be used to impart G-force effects for driving/racing or aerial flight content. Standard visual cues during game play are rendered obsolete as hits, kicks and punches from outside the players’ field of vision are felt.

ForceWear is currently available in black tactical vest, camouflage, as well as a racing vest with flame-suit appearance. TN Games’ ForceWear Vest is being introduced on PC platform and will be available to consumers in November 2007.

TN Games at GDC

TN Games’ is participating this week at the 2007 Game Developer’s Conference in San Francisco, CA from March 7 through 9. Please visit TN Games’ Booth 5307, North Hall in the Microsoft Pavilion at Moscone Center to demo the ForceWear Vest.

indeed

Or turn the situation around. A sheeped class getting a fully buffed ice bolt with trinket and all on while frost nova right in the ribs. I'm sure next day you'll call in sick at your job/school.

Or fight Patchwerk with this baby on and you'll be the main tank (getting hit every 1.5sec) or the first meatshield and you'll be catching most Hateful strikes. Ouch.
