This CES Award-Winning Haptic Gaming Vest Boasts 40 Feedback Points

Realistic haptic feedback is one of the next major frontiers in the ongoing quest to make video games more immersive, and the latest haptic vest from bHaptics — the Tactsuit X40 — is the most impressive example we’ve ever seen.

A 2021 CES Innovation Awards honoree, the bHaptics Tactsuit X40 features 40 individually controllable ERM motors that provide positional haptic feedback across your entire torso. Powered by a lithium-ion rechargeable battery that offers up to 18 hours of playing time, the cross-platform X40 works with consoles, mobile games, PC, and VR. The vest offers Bluetooth connectivity for lag-free haptic feedback where applicable, and a wired connection where it isn’t. Also new is bHaptics’ smaller and lighter vest, the X16, which features — you guessed it — 16 vibrating motors. Either vest can be combined with the company’s Tactal haptic face cover and Tactosy haptic arm, hand, and foot sleeves for a complete full-body haptic experience that promises to completely change the way you game. The bHaptics Tactsuit X40 is available now for $499 on bHaptics’ website.
