Virtual reality has come a long way, but we haven’t seen an innovation quite like the teslasuit yet (no relation to Elon Musk’s Tesla, might we add). It is a full body suit, visually similar to a scuba suit, that is comprised of smart textile fabric that can transfer sensations from VR. Paired with a VR headset such as Oculus Rift, the teslasuit allows the wearer to feel a range of sensation for a truly immersive VR experience. The suit uses neuromuscular electrical stimulation, widely used in sports and rehabilitation. Its haptic feedback system delivers precise sensations have definitely has a wide range of applications beyond traditional gaming. For example, in sports, medicine, military, education and much more. It can really open up a whole new door of the virtual world and allow human beings worldwide to be even closer connected to each other.
