Crytek now support TESLASUIT full-body haptic feedback in CRYENGINE |

One of the coolest thi ngs that the TESLASUIT can do is simulate both hot and cold temperatures, which would be a game changer for gaming. It would take VR gaming in a totally new direction, and unlock thousands of applications and add oodles more immersion to any VR and AR experience.

TESLASUIT will also capture both motion and biometrics, with the suit providing users with "sensation and a sense of touch in virtual and augmented reality, including heavy and light impacts, rain, or wind-blowing. TESLASUIT integrated biometric system gathers real-time data from users which can be used to relay emotional state, stress level, and key health indicators. This enables interactive VR/AR content that adapts to the user for personalized experiences".

Sense of touch? You feel impacts? Rain, and wind? Sign me up. Now.

Director of CRYENGINE Enterprise Solutions, Pascal Tonecker, said: "We have followed the success story of TESLASUIT for some time, and we are convinced that this technology will lift professional immersive applications, both in VR and AR, to a whole new level. With this integration, we continue to offer our licensees the very best technology on the market".

Dimitri Mikhalchuk, CRO of TESLASUIT said: "CRYENGINE is known for its unrivaled visual fidelity, and it is a proven VR technology. In combination with TESLASUIT, we can create the most immersive environments yet, and this is what makes this partnership so valuable for us".

This news rides the back of the new Ready Player One-style haptic suit in the Woojer Edge series vest.

Anthony is a long time PC enthusiast with a passion of hate for games to be built around consoles. With FPS gaming since the pre-Quake days, where you were insulted if you used a mouse to aim, he has been addicted to gaming and hardware ever since. Working in IT retail for 10 years gave him great experience with high-end, custom-built PCs. His addiction to GPU technology is unwavering, and with next-gen NVIDIA GPUs about to launch alongside 4K 144Hz HDR G-Sync gaming monitors and BFGDs (65-inch 4K 120Hz HDR G-Sync TVs) there has never been a time to be more excited about technology.
