Believe it or not, haptic tech company OWOGame says it will let you feel what it’s like to get stabbed!

Video games have been pushing the boundaries of immersion with technological advancements like virtual reality goggles. However, some companies take it further by letting you feel the game beyond your fingers. The new Assassin’s Creed shirt is only one example.

How does the new Assassin’s Creed shirt work?

FEATURED STORIES

Let’s discuss the basic premise of Assassin’s Creed to explain the new haptic shirt. The game involves a main character in modern times exploring the memories of the Assassin Order to locate powerful artifacts before the Templars do.

The upcoming installment is AC: Mirage, which will let you play as Basim in medieval Baghdad, Afghanistan. The main appeal of this video game lies in its expansive open worlds you explore by climbing structures and running on rooftops.

Also, it mostly involves sneaking around and eliminating targets without being detected. AC encourages stealth by making it difficult to fight enemies head-on.

Consequently, haptic video game peripheral company OWOGame created a new device for Assassin’s Creed: Mirage. It is a shirt that will let you feel Basim’s in-game sensations.

For example, the shirt lets you feel the air swept away as you sprint across rooftops. Climb a structure, and the shirt lets you feel your torso touching the wall.

The haptic vest lets you feel what it’s like getting stabbed. As a result, it could make your gaming experience more tense as you avoid getting hurt. Believe it or not, OWO lets you feel numerous sensations like:

The Assassin’s Creed shirt isn’t the first time companies tried to make you feel your video games. Others have been focusing on virtual reality gloves.

They let you interact with digital worlds with your fingers and hands instead of a controller. For example, the Hi5 VR Gloves offer full-finger tracking in VR.

What sets it apart from other haptic gloves is the convenient setup. Plug it into your favorite gaming device, and you’re ready to play. Plus, it’s super customizable.

For example, you can adjust the vibration rumblers. Unlike other VR gloves, the Hi5 has a single-hand mode, letting you wear only one the devices.

Believe it or not, Meta has been developing VR technology, too. Aside from its Meta Quest 2 headset, it’s been working on advanced haptic gloves.

It sets itself apart from other VR gloves by simulating pressure. Most devices only let you pick up and move in-game objects. The Meta gloves will let you feel like they’re in your hands.

For example, carry a pillow and the gloves apply little to no pressure. Lift a heavy box; the gloves let you feel the strain of picking up that object.

Conclusion

Game technology company OWOGame created a new haptic shirt for the upcoming Assassin’s Creed: Mirage game. It lets you feel the main character’s in-game sensations.

As a result, the company hopes to increase your immersion in this video game. Nowadays, more tech companies are developing similar devices.
