The lights are on
YEI's gaming exoskeleton, the PrioVR, communicates with an Oculus Rift in order to bring your bodies motions into the simulation. During my CES demo I got to try the unit and found that the body tracking system works well, but the suit is a little tricky to put on. I also imagine that flailing my arms around to shoot enemies might get old after awhile. Gaming with a PrioVR might be more immersive for some, but it won't be more relaxing. Check out the video below for an example of how the system works.
YEI already launched a Kickstarter for the PrioVR back in September, but failed to meet its $225,000 goal. Not to be defeated, the company with be relaunching its Kickstarter in February, so if you want to look like a cheap Robocop cosplayer while gaming, then keep your eye on PrioVR.
