Special vest lets players feel video game blows

A vest designed by doctor Mark Ombrellaro uses air pressure and feedback from computer games to deliver pneumatic thumps to the spots on players' torsos where they would have been struck were they actually on the battlefields.

The "3rd Space" vest will make its US debut in November at a price of 189 dollars. It will be launched with the first-person shooter game "Call of Duty" and a custom-made title.

Uses air pressure? Does it come with an air compressor? LOL, kidding, of course.

All that have requested the helmet for headshots: Your wish is our command! Prototype completed & was shown at CES to great reviews. Will be out in Autumn 2008 :)
