In order to receive any sort of feedback from video games, game console manufacturers tend to just put something that can rumble in a controller and call it a day. But the team behind the As Real As It Gets (ARAIG) is hoping to offer a more immersive experience through a new multi-sensor feedback suit they’re looking to develop through a Kickstarter project.
The ARAIG is made from a combination of a hardware decoder, undersuit and exoskeleton layers which will provide feedback to the player depending on what’s happening in-game. Getting pushed, shot or blown through a wall will all provide the suitable amount of feedback to the player, although we hope it doesn’t give too much of an accurate amount of feedback as the feeling of being shot is probably one many wouldn’t enjoy.
ARAIG is currently seeking a $900,000 Kickstarter funding goal, with the developers claiming it’ll work with “any console or peripheral, any genre or game.” You know what that means, right? You can finally feel what it’s like to fall in love with a T-Rex!
