Hardlight VR is a new startup that is changing the game with the creation of a motion capture VR suit with location-based haptic feedback for users to wear while gaming or using VR devices.
Initially conceived by students and members of the University of Rochester’s Robotics Club, Morgan Sinko (CEO), Lucian Copeland (COO) and Jordan Brooks (CTO), who then went on to form Nullspace VR, Hardlight VR is the future of gaming. Imagine being able to feel a punch or gunshot (or at least a milder stimulation) while playing your favourite game? Well, the suit has 16 unique haptic feedback zones that target every muscle group responsible for delivering each real, gut-wrenching reaction. It also has advanced in-game body tracking.
As the video below shows, this might revolutionise gaming as we know it:
