    Haptic Glove With DIY Flex Sensors

    Vibration motors sound like a good idea on the gloves only. One or two of them on each hand would work no different that of a dual shock controller and would just be enough to spread out on the entire hand, just through the vibration ripples alone. However I don't really see that being possible on full body suit. I guess I may as well tell you, much of why I asked these questions was that I wanted to know if it was possible to make a suit similar to the X-1 Haptic Bootsuit in Ready Player One. Now I know they got a similar suit that Elon Musk is working on, but I also wanted to see if it was possible to make one with materials used at home and in hobby shops. Anywho. I'm not saying it's impossible to use vibration motors on the full body, but I feel like the whole thing might be a spec...

I'm not saying it's impossible to use vibration motors on the full body, but I feel like the whole thing might be a spectacular mess and wouldn't look good covered or not. I don't know much about the conductive bags, but I assume they live up to the name and can conduct electrical currents. (If I'm wrong please correct) Would it be possible if as an alternative the suit could have a mild electrical current flowing through it, with sensors placed at crucial spots. (Arms, legs, chest and so on.) which will cause the current to slightly increase in intensity, through the hit and touch detection of the VR game your playing. All of which controlled through the masters mentioned before? Of course that's not even beginning to get into the protection procedures needed to make sure you don't get shocked by accident through sweating.

    Ok cool. Next question. I understand the glove is mostly for just substituting for the mouse. But is it also like the known haptic products. By that I mean if you felt a certain sensation from a game, would you feel it through that glove? And if not how would you go abouts constructing that aspect let alone put it in a full body suit?

    Why not use two masters, one for the body's front and back. Then all you'd need is less than the amount of microcontrollers you'd need if it was running off one.

    Is it possible to make a full body suit out with the same method?

    Question, what if you don't want the print out portion of it and just want the brainwaves displayed on screen?

    Better yet, why not use a screen capture software to capture your results.
