Somnium Space – the open, persistent, blockchain based VR world – announced an exclusive partnership with Teslasuit, the full body haptic feedback platform. Bringing the first 5 sensorial experiences to Somnium – rain, touch, shooting, music and full body tracking – Somnium opens the door wide open to next level immersion. Experience touch sensations, experience the Somnium summer rain hit your body, seamlessly transfer all your body movements to your Somnium avatar.
Somnium Space has taken yet another major stride towards providing a unique, open platform for a second to none immersive virtual reality experience. Announced on Twitter, they released a promo video where we can see Artur Sychov – founder and CEO of Somnium Space – both in physical reality, equipped with a Teslasuit, and his VR counterpart.
What is Teslasuit?
Teslasuit is a full body haptic feedback platform for Virtual and Augmented Reality. It can transfer sensation from virtual reality to a human body through electric impulses controlled by a mini computer (control unit) with an advanced motion capture system on board.
With haptic feedback, touch sensations and force feedback can be provided. The whole system is built into the suit and can be engaged on actions, on demand, or in response to motion capture comparison. This feedback provides users with sensation and a sense of touch in virtual and augmented reality. This electro-stimulation improves the learning experience by increasing immersion, fostering 360-degree awareness, and engaging muscle memory.Source: https://teslasuit.io/
Teslasuit on auction during the Road2TLO
Somnium Space will put 10 Teslasuit Founder Editions on auction during the Road2TLO this month (July 2021), the first 3 available for purchase in week 2 of the 4-week campaign.
Starting at a minimum bid of 7 ETH, anyone can join the action on OpenSea, the NFT marketplace. Those who win the bid, will get the suit with world wide priority shipping and tailored to their body type.
Somnium is moving at the speed of light. They’ve always made very clear that their motto is ‘VR first’. They’ve been delivering on that promise from the very beginning – it doesn’t require much time in VR in Somnium Space to understand that – but with the Teslasuit partnership they’re stepping it up once again, getting far ahead of what any other platform can provide.
More sensorial experiences in the future
The Teslasuit is an extremely versatile platform and Somnium Space works together with the Teslasuit team to provide even more experiences, such as feeling G-forces when driving a car in VR or when flying/gliding, tracking biometrics, etc.
These developments will propel Somnium Space even further into the future. But that future, with this new partnership, is already now.
