Vibrating controllers, rattling control wheels or angry joysticks – Game feedback has been around for a long time. Now the British company VR Electronics has introduced the next level of fast feedback from the digital world. Her "Tesla suit" is a suit designed to simulate touch, temperature and other physical effects on the body.
In video games, virtual reality environments or sports simulations, Teslasuit lets you experience digital events across the body, as promised by the manufacturer of its website. This is made possible by electrical impulses that stimulate the muscles of the wearer. The software controls the two-piece suit via Bluetooth or W-LAN. The battery should last 8 to 10 hours.

VR Electronics stresses that Tesla is not a gimmick. Even non-electronic entertainment applications are possible. Because biometrics and motion sensors are available, the suit can be used to train athletes, heavy workers or police officers, as well as for medical rehabilitation.
The Force Feedback suit is scheduled to hit the market in November for between $ 1,000 and $ 2,500.
Whether Teslasuit also works with Stadia on Google is still unknown. The US company introduced its streaming game service in June. You can find out everything here.
