Video game developers are already working hard on improving the gaming experience, and making it even more seamless than it is today. A Kickstarter project is looking to bring game play to a whole different level with the ARAIG multisensory gaming suit.


ARAIG, which stands for As Real As It Gets, is a wearable technology that enables video game players to actually hear and feel what is happening in the game. The multi-sensory suit is fitted with integrated surround sound and haptic feedback on the torso and upper arms. The ARAIG suit is also designed in a way that will allow game developers to create and implement the sensations for their particular video games.

ARAIG comes with a Decoder, which is what connects the suit to the console, an Exoskeleton, a rechargeable power cell, and a power cord.
