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?
Connect via USB
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.
(From L-R): The Black, Camo and Pink vests
Get ready for combat!
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!
Pneumatic cells are embedded around the vest
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!

3rd Space Game Driver Software:
The 3rd Space Driver, developed by TN Games, is software which runs on your PC that adds the 3rd Space effects to a particular game during game play. This one piece of software communicates with multiple game titles. The 3rd Space driver is not part of the game itself, and the 3rd Space controls are NOT contained on the game disc. Below is a list of game titles (and versions) which 3rd space effects can be enabled by the 3rd Space driver. In order for the 3rd Space effects to work, you will need to be playing an official licensed version of the appropriate game. This list will be updated, and new versions of the driver made available for download, as more titles become supported
