    I'm a huge fan of Ready Player One. Here's our podcast episode on Ready Player One:
    If you want to know how this marvel works, just watch the next video... it explains Everything you want to know. I chose to break this up into two videos because it was so cool.
    I asked HaptX for a blurb to explain their company. This is what they came up with:
    HaptX is a multidisciplinary team of engineers based in San Luis Obispo, CA and Seattle, WA that builds advanced haptic technology. Their first product, HaptX Gloves, brings touch feedback to VR with unprecedented realism, enabling a new category of industrial training simulations. Founded by Jake Rubin and Dr. Bob Crockett in 2012, HaptX won’t stop until you can’t tell what’s real from what’s virtual. Learn more at haptx.com.
    If you're interested in working for them, here's a link:

    The thought is it my efforts making videos will help educate the world as a whole, and one day generate enough revenue to pay for my kids college education. Until then if you appreciate what you've learned in this video and the effort that went in to it, please SHARE THE VIDEO!

    Force feedback has been in Joysticks for ages so that's old technology. Also look up the nintendo power glove which is a Very very early version of that glove.

    How and why could you possibly think VR was not going to catch on? It literally is the future and everybody knows that. There are so many different uses not just video games. You can train students to perform surgery on virtual bodies for one and yeah its not the same as the real thing but it would be a great starting point for doctors in training.

    This is totally cool. I'm 63 and would likely try to buy this when it's available. A full body suit like this could provide total immersion. Then, content creators can, and likely will, go crazy.

    The other day, I played an hour of Beatsaber without stretching and pulled muscles in both thighs from crouching under obstacles. I find it amazing that I got a physical injury from a videogame. Think about that. A videogame gave me a physical injury. A VIDEOGAME!

    My only issue is that it doesn't look like it's being developed for gaming - it's focusing mostly on VR training for engineers and things like that. Which is totally fine, but that also means that this technology may take a little longer to come to home VR systems.
