The experience that will take you to another level of immersion

The two vests can be adapted to all types of public, initially the x16 was intended for individuals and the x40 for a more business implementation, although both are mostly used for home or recreational use. The main difference between one and the other is, as the name says, that the first one has 16 vibration motors, unlike the second one that has 40 motors. In both models, the motors are distributed between the front and rear, to be able to feel zombie bites, cuts, vibrations, shots, among others.

TactSuit X16 offers us 16 feedback points distributed throughout the vest, thus offering us a very good experience and also an autonomy of more than 20 hours of gameplay.

Are they compatible with all games?

As for its compatibility will depend on what kind of use we want to give it, anyway, on their official website they offer a list of compatible games, which is constantly updated.

Some of the best Virtual Reality titles of all kinds are compatible with haptic accessories, for example Half-Life Alyx, Beat Saber, Phasmophobia or I Expect You To Die, although they require Mods to work properly and to be able to live a fully immersive experience with new possibilities, settings, characters and sensations.

Thanks to the bHaptics Player application we can customize the response and performance we want the vest to offer us. We can also create different profiles in the games, according to the tastes and characteristics that we seek for that particular experience.
