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.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
