3D space vest

Let us pretend you are a soldier and you are being sent to war. One of the first questions that should pop into mind: how will you prevent yourself from getting shot? Armor that body! Wear heavy boots, a helmet and don't forget to put on your bulletproof vest to win that fight!

Now picture yourself, wearing all that stuff, sitting on the couch, fighting your opponents in some world of warcraft. No chance this could happen to you? Don't be so sure...

"Unlike traditional force feedback devices that rumble or buzz, the 3rdSpace Vest gives you precise impact where it happens, as it happens. Get pounded with body slams, crushed with G-forces, and blasted with bullet fire."

Now isn't that the kind of interaction you've always desired to experience with your computer? The vests come in three flavours: camo, strawberry and black. Good luck on your couch-quest!

Speaking of tele-presence... Quite a product!
I wonder if the soldiers who remotely operate the MQ-9 Reapers flying over Afghanistan from behind computers in Nevada, would wear these.

What is your view on the coronavirus?

Siri Beerends: I really embrace the idea that viruses can teach us a lesson in modesty. It is necessary that our position as the dominant species on the planet is being challenged. I also agree that it is a mistake to think that we are becoming Gods. But unfortunately, this is actually what is happening now. Corona doesn’t teach us to be modest, it teaches us how we can -as quickly as possible- go back to business as usual: saving our capitalistic economy.
