Do you know the feeling when you’re standing next to the speakers at a concert and feeling the sound inside your body? The vibration is so intense that you feel the music with your bones, not just with your ears. This is exactly what the Woojer Vest does but without the sound that would wake up the whole neighborhood.
The Woojer Vest, formerly known as the Woojer Ryg, makes you “feel” the game by sending sound vibrations to your body. The Israeli team behind it spent two years inventing the haptic technology that makes it work.
The vest comes with a built-in 7.1 surround card and has eight haptic zones. The haptic elements work on permanent magnets that vibrate without making a single sound. Even though they only produce vibrations, your body interprets the feeling like the effects of loud music.
What does it feel like? When you close your eyes while listening to music, you feel like you’re in the middle of a rave. The bass going through your body instantly makes you want to dance.
This rig is great if you’re an audiophile, but it’s gaming where its potential really shines through. When you bail out of a plane in Battle Royale, you feel the tug of the parachute on your shoulders. You feel the recoil of every shot. You feel the jumps and running on rough terrain.
Pair the Woojer Vest with a VR headset, get some RedBull, hire custom writers to handle your college matters, and get fully immersed in your favorite virtual world. The vest supports all gaming platforms and most VR headsets. It functions well out of the box: just charge it, plug it in, and enjoy up to 8 hours of incredible gaming.
