PrioVR Expands Virtual Reality With Body Tracking Suits

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.
