Force feedback vest coming to a PC near you

TN Games, makers of "physical experience hardware," will release a PC vest accessory in the US on Nov. 21 that mimics the feeling of being hit by real bullets when playing first-person shooters.

The 3rd Space FPS Vest features eight embedded contact points that are said to simulate the direction and force of bullet fire in a first-person shooter game.

"Our patented vest technology now provides gamers with an unprecedented opportunity to physically experience their action... feel the rush of body slams, be crushed with G-forces, feel a stab wound or be blasted with bullet fire in either a single or multi-player game," said Mark Ombrellaro, founder of TN Games.

The 3rd Space FPS Vest comes bundled with a TN Games developed first-person shooter in addition to a 3rd Space enabled version of Call of Duty II. The rumble suit retails for US$189, although it can be purchased online without Call of Duty II for US$169.

Shipping Nov. 21, the FPS vest also supports Quake 3, 4, and Doom 3 via free software patches found on the Redmond-based company's website. It is available in black, digital camouflage, and pink and comes in two adjustable sizes.

You can see a video preview of the FPS vest on our sister site, PC World.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
