Developers Disney, in conjunction with experts from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and the University of Carnegie Mellon created a concept jacket for virtual reality.
This is reported by The Verge.
Jacket called Force Jacket ("power vest"), allows you to experience a number of tactile effects in virtual reality. On its inner surface, 26 small "air cushions" are evenly placed. They are deflated and inflated by pneumatic devices, which allows the jacket owner to feel the forces and vibrations directed to certain parts of the body.
The performance parameters of each such "cushion", such as speed and inflation force, are controlled by special software. The researchers learned how to simulate a certain number of different interactions using a jacket, and also created virtual reality test applications using these effects.
For example, developers can make a person feel hugs, blows, creeping insects or snakes, drops of rain, vibration from riding a motorcycle and so on.

In one of the developed applications, the user needs to throw snowballs with the help of the controller, as well as avoiding the snowballs of the opponent. When "snow" hits, "air cushions" are sharply inflated and imitate a collision.
Another application allows the user to feel how the snake wraps around the body.
Another application allows you to feel how the virtual character grows muscles, because of what hands squeezed clothes.
The developers note that the Force Jacket prototype is still quite heavy and limits the free movement of the user, but in the long term it can be made more convenient.
In Disney, it is assumed that the jacket will be used with VR-headsets for more acute impressions.
