Synesthesia Suit Rumbles While Playing Rez Infinite #WearableWednesday
At Sony’s recent Playstation event they demonstrated the ‘synesthesia suit’ for the new Playstation VR game Rez: Infinite. This suit has 26 transducers that pulse and vibrate different locations of the body in tune with what’s happening in the game. Combined with a virtual reality headset you can see and feel every action in the game. Unfortunately only one official synesthesia suit will be built to demonstrate the game, but it could be an awesome wearable project to build yourself based on the haptic headband project.
Also check out video of the game’s announcement to see its creator Tetsuya Mizuguchi in a full-body LED suit that flashes and pulses along with the game:
