Feel the Film With Philips Jacket

This has to be the ultimate method of literally getting into a film. Philips has designed a jacket that is lined with vibration motors and 64 actuators that are linked along a serial bus across both arms and torso. The clothing simulates outside forces, but fortunately not the violent type. So instead of feeling a kick to Bruce Lee, you feel his emotions such as tension and anxiety. Not only will a shiver go up your spine, it will create a pulsing that is meant to simulate an elevated heartrate. The jacket was displayed at the recent IEEE-sponsored 2009 World Haptics Conference 2009.
