Crytek Adds Full-Body Haptics Features to CRYENGINE Thanks to Partnership with TESLASUIT
In a press release sent out today, Crytek announced the upcoming integration of TESLASUIT's full-body haptic feedback and 'physical sensation' features into their CRYENGINE development tool. Among other things, the suit can simulate cold and heat temperatures.
Pascal Tonecker, Director of CRYENGINE Enterprise Solutions, said in a statement:
We have followed the success story of TESLASUIT for some time, and we are convinced that this technology will lift professional immersive applications, both in VR and AR, to a whole new level. With this integration, we continue to offer our licensees the very best technology on the market.
Dimitri Mikhalchuk, CRO of TESLASUIT, added:
CRYENGINE is known for its unrivaled visual fidelity, and it is a proven VR technology. In combination with TESLASUIT, we can create the most immersive environments yet, and this is what makes this partnership so valuable for us.
The press release also provided additional information on the possible uses of TESLASUIT.
The TESLASUIT can be used for a range of applications, including gaming, physical training, rehabilitation, and more. CRYENGINE’s integration of TESLASUIT features will be initially distributed exclusively to preferred partners, with a focus on enterprise and industrial projects, and will subsequently be integrated into a future available-to-all version of the engine.
TESLASUIT advanced physical suits provide haptic feedback and climate control in addition to capturing both motion and biometrics. The suits provide users with sensation and a sense of touch in virtual and augmented reality, including heavy and light impacts, rain, or wind-blowing. TESLASUIT integrated biometric system gathers real-time data from users which can be used to relay emotional state, stress level, and key health indicators. This enables interactive VR/AR content that adapts to the user for personalized experiences.
