A vest that simulates your physical reaction to bullet fire

The 3rd Space™ Vest from TN Games takes gameplay beyond sight and sound, creating spatial awareness of the world your characters inhabit. The 3rd Space™ Vest gives you precise impact of bullet fire or a pounding blow. A built-in system of eight pneumatic microcompressors permits simulated blows of about 30 pounds per square inch, so gamers feel a punch but don’t sustain injury. The technology for this vest was originally developed for medical use to assist with physical examinations conducted remotely via closed-circuit “tele-medicine” TV channels. TN Games is a subsidiary of TouchNetworks Inc., and its founder, Mark Ombrellaro, is a vascular surgeon. He said in an interview last year that the gaming version of the vest was devised in part to help bring attention to his company’s technology.
