Sensor-Studded Jacket Feels Movies
This wearable device is designed to enhance the movie-watching experience with tactile sensations.
Just as music enhances the film-viewing experience, a sensor jacket means to convey the subtler but not exact sensations and emotions of a film, such as spine-tingling in coordination with the action of the story. Users will not endure the pain of a barroom brawl, for example, when they wear this jacket during such a scene in a cowboy picture.
Powered by two AA batteries, the jacket contains 64 independently controlled actuators, located strategically throughout the fabric.
