VR + sensation of flying this is the Hypersuit

So those with rigs for their VR can suck my Hypersuit body part, as this weird ass set up allows you to have the sensation of flying whilst using the oculus rift.

And while my adult self is screaming that this isn’t actually that cool,  I can’t help but be drawn to this by my inner 5yr old child.

Made by a Parisian startup company, Hypersuit aims to give you a fully immersive experience.

Best suited for games such as base jumping, flying superhero games, underwater, skydiving and space exploration the Hypersuit is actually not a suit as such, but a full body controller, like an exoskeleton.

The arms of the seat type thing, are designed to gesture every human arm movement with various “setups” to suit the type of game you are playing.

It even comes with fans so you can “feel the wind in your hair”.

This has been designed for gaming in mind, but can be one day used for military training or physical therapy.

No word on price, but anytime you mention military you know it’s going to be pricey.

Will I ever get one? Probably not…but that doesn’t mean I don’t want one. 🙂
