3rd Space FPS Vest Shoots You In The Back

FPS Vest

By Evan Ackerman

N00b pwners everywhere rejoice: now you can physically abuse your gaming opponents, which (trust me) is much more satisfying that just typing “lol u suxorz” over and over again. The 3rd Space Vest was originally designed to be a remote medical diagnostic tool, but it’s obviously much more appropriate for the first person shooter genre, where its 8 pneumatically-actuated pressure cells can simulate the direction and force of incoming fire. The vest will currently work with Quake 3, Quake 4, Call of Duty, and Doom 3, but I imagine that it’ll be easily adaptable to other games. It comes in a few sizes in both camo and black, and for you hardcore FPS girls, it even comes in pink to match your Hello Kitty gaming rig. The $189 retail price ($169 if you pre-order) includes the vest, an air compressor, a USB cable, and a power supply. The FPS Vest should ship in November; a version that mimics G-forces for flight sims and racing sims is in the works. My recommendation for the next generation: built-in tazers and heating/cooling pads for you fantasy RPG nutjobs.

    Powered by air? How much sound does it make?

    You’ll die before you notice.
    It’s an unfortunate side effect of it being really realistic.

    That pink thing isn’t going to sell at all. It looks like that godawful breast-cancer-awareness junk that’s all over the place.
