I have tried it yesterday for the 1st time . I have tried to play Sairento VR which is 1 of the few games supported by hardlight vest.
The vest for now is not wireless because they did not send me the vr module, so i have two 5 feet cables running from the back of the suit. The power cord and the usb cord that go to the pc.
It seems that the vest has
1) haptic feedback
2) upper body tracking
3) some sort of sound feedback
The only thing I was able to try is the haptic feedback of the vest that comes from the game I was playing. For whatever reason , when I turned on the tracking , the haptic feedback was not working and that is before the game was even started. I am not sure if the game Sairento VR has both upper body tracking and force feedback. I do not think it does. But again, the problem with activating the tracking and the haptic feedback getting disabled , might be either of me not knowing how to use the vest or a problem with the vest software. There is no manual and there is no support. They still have to write me back with an answer to my 1st email.
The amount of vibration you get from the vest , is a little bit more than the vibration you feel in the hand with the vive controllers.
U do not feel huge hits, but only virations.
We need more games compatible with the vest, otherwise the vr gadget remains limited to a few games for its use.
The vibration is there. The vest with vibration does what should do.....vibrate.
Is it a groundbreaking experience? Not really. Imagine sticking some motors that vibrate as the vive trackers vibrate and that is what is about.
I would like to use the vest for also its body tracking , but I am not sure what program or game would allow me that.
The hardlight vest needs better customer support and some sort of interaction between customers to share the usage and the experience with the vest.
I am not sure how to make work the sound output.
Who I am going to ask help to?
