Modern games not immersive enough for you? You might want to consider getting the 3rd Space FPS Gaming Vest, which promises to blast you into the action in ways you might never have imagined. Sort of.
Here's how it works: you strap the vest on, connect it to your PC via USB, and to a compressor unit via an air tube. Fire up a compatible game (Call of Duty 2 is bundled), get shot, and the drivers will send a message to the compressor to fire a blast of air down the tube, and into a set of air bags inside the vest. The effect is supposed to be akin to getting shot.
In truth, it's nothing like getting shot -- trust us, we work in South East London, so we know. There's no incredible shocking impact, no feeling like a bomb's just gone off in your chest, and no blood spurts. It's more like being gently prodded. Plus, if you get prodded loads of times in a row, the compressor runs out of air and has to refill itself.
Having said that, it does add a degree of involvement, like a much bigger version of the vibrating controller. We're not sure whether it's worth £149, but if you've got the cash and you want to take your games to the next level, head over to iwantoneofthose.com and get involved.
