Immersive gaming is“the” big buzzword in gaming. When gamers, YouTubers, and other gaming type folk talk about immersive gaming they usually are talking about the in-game experience: graphics and animations and how things are to being “real” etc.
According to a random website that we found on Google, arm.com (oddly enough not a porn site), immersive games are video games that transport the player into an alternative world where techniques are used to make them feel more like the character they’re playing. This is achieved through a combination of good game flow, fully developed storylines, and extreme realism made possible by cutting-edge graphics. A realistic, open-world — fortified with remarkable graphics — is a key element in making games captivating.”
While gaming companies work harder and harder to get us into “The Oasis” the creative team at Woojer took a different approach to make gaming more immersive with their Vest Edge, a wearable piece of immersive technology.
The Vest Edge enhances the immersive gaming experience by helping you feel the action. The vest is loaded with a 6x patented, powerful, polyphonic & silent Osci™ haptic transducer. Or in English, built-in high-tech speakers. Meaning when you are gaming you can actually feel a gunshot, explosion, car drifting and so much more.
The Woojer vest does for your body what headphones do for your ears. We found the combination of the vest with VR games is where things really get exciting and attack your senses from all directions.
It’s much more than a vibrating controller or big gaming subwoofer because you are wearing the audio and feel the action in your back, shoulders, stomach, and up and down your spine.
While the vest was originally designed for gamers, audiophiles have started grabbing them up, to help enhance their movie-watching experience, as well as people who have hearing disabilities, are able to feel the music.
This is next-level wearable tech. If you have a gamer in your family or you want to treat yourself to something special, at $375 on sale on the Woojer website, the Woojer Vest Edge is a great compliment to the immersive gaming experience, make your movies more realistic and a lot more.
