Forget about rumbling, buzzing joypads. PC gaming just got a whole lot more realistic thanks to the incredible 3rd Space FPS Vest. This state of the art flak jacket utilises patented pneumatic technology to simulate bullet hits, punches, body slams, explosions and much more. It can even simulate the precise direction and force of bullet fire and replicate fear-inducing finger taps on your shoulders. Aargh! Who'd have guessed being shot, walloped, whacked and smacked could be so entertaining?
No pain no gain!
The USB-friendly 3rd Space FPS Vest takes first person shooter-style games to unparalleled levels of realism. Not that we've ever been shot. It's just that this hi-tech peripheral plunges you right into the thick of it like never before. Believe us, the tension becomes pant-wettingly unbearable when you're wearing this body-bashing baby.

So how does it work? Well, eight, count 'em, eight, pneumatic cells are embedded in various spots around the vest. As the vest communicates with compatible games (via the included software), a special compressor fires air into the cells using appropriate levels of force to accurately simulate the on-screen action. So a direct hit from a rifle will elicit a sharp thud whilst a girly punch will summon an appropriately feeble 'wumph'. Get blasted by some alien shotgun and your entire upper body will receive an almighty whack from all eight cells. Ouch! The jacket won't bruise you but you'll certainly know you've been tagged. And if you get shot from behind or slapped on the back, the vest responds accordingly. Yow!
Get ready for combat!
Yes, you will look pretty daft sitting in front of your computer wearing a flak jacket but who cares about that when you're reeling from three direct hits to the chest and a rata-tat-tat of machine gun fire from behind. It's just like the real thing minus all that pain and dying business.

The 3rd Space FPS Vest comes bundled with its own game disc, 3rd Space Incursion, plus a copy of Activision's Call of Duty 2, but it's also compatible with stacks of other games including Quake 4 and Medal of Honour Airborne.
Quite frankly this is one of the most amazing gaming accessories we've ever had the pleasure to wear. Come to think of it, it's the only gaming accessory we've ever had the pleasure to wear. So get ordering - you won't know what's hit you!
