Feel the power of VR

Everyone is now familiar with virtual-reality headsets, but what about other wearable VR equipment? Cerevo have announced an upcoming release of Taclim, which it says are the world's first VR shoes and VR gloves. This tech allow users to actually feel VR experiences via tactile devices — one in each glove and three in each shoe.

Developed in collaboration with Nidec Seimitsu Corporation, Taclim generates tactile sensations to match its users' visual experiences. Game players can feel sand, grass — even the texture of the shoes that their game characters are wearing. Not only this, but because Taclim is also equipped with 9-axis sensors, both the gloves and shoes can also add more motion data to the VR experience, making it an even more immersive. For developers, there is also a Unity plug-in.
