This Bodysuit Helps You Feel Virtual Reality

The world of virtual reality is just getting started, and the potential for it is becoming more realized by the day. Virtual reality bodysuits by companies like PrioVR promise to put you into the game, but the U.K.-based company Tesla Studios (no relation to Tesla Motors) is looking to go far beyond that. Meet the Teslasuit. This full-body wearable tech, which is in development as of 2015, allows you to actually have fully tactile experiences with a realistic virtual sense of touch. It made of smart textiles and consists of a belt, a vest, gloves, and leg and arm bands. The suit would allow you to feel a hug when nobody is around, or a gust of wind in a motionless room.
