    I watched a demo on Youtube about a commercial haptic vest for gaming

    Has anyone made any custom devices? I've been considering trying to sew some miniature vibration motors into gloves and have them powered by Simhub since it can handle more than one motor driving shield.

    I have also read about VR type gloves that have a motor mounted on the back and what looks like actuators from the motor out to the fingers to give a sense of soilidity to VR items. The future of gaming is bright.

    Wow. Hopefully they've improved. How did it feel besides the poor craftsmanship?

    The CoreFX haptic effects were relatively minor and of course not controllable in the way we can now do with transducers and Game Vibe, so I consider DIY options can be far superior.
