      I suppose this is another step towards total immersion gaming (not to mention other potentially very useful functionality in the non-gaming personal computing space). I suppose we’ll get to tactile gloves and full sensory stimulation bodysuits in due course. See in South Korea they’re already rolling out ’4D” (I think Avatar was shown there in that ‘format’) where the viewer also gets to experience their chair shaking, the smells of explosions and cut vegetation and mists of water sprayed in their faces. Schlocky sounding? Sure. Wait until they can stimulate our five senses directly via neural interface. It’ll be all over then we won’t know where we are we’ll be able to spend our whole lives in the MAtrix what am I talking about we already do the most of us.

      I don’t play console games nor even have a tv got better things to do with my life than sit before a screen pretending I’m something I’m not but if I didn’t then I’d deffo buy this.
