The 3rd Space gaming jacket: now with in-built WoW feedback

TN Games said that they have enhanced the 3rd Space jacket's game driver to give WoW gamers “three dimensionally accurate tactile sensory stimuli” in tune with the game’s action.

The driver, called version 2.0, can also supposedly give players “fantastic contact effects” and a physical sensory experience of, say, magical spells and powers.

For example, you’ll no longer have to imagine the feeling of Hakkar the Soulflayer debuffing you, because the jacket will turn the action into a physical feeling.

TN Games’ latest driver for its 3rd Space FPS sensory gaming vest will be available to download online, but a release date hasn't been given.
