Teslasuit, the Full Body Haptic VR Suit, Wins the Red Dot Award

You can imagine a VR headset, allowing you to take a glimpse inside a virtual world, move, see and hear inside it. So far, your sense of feeling has been pretty restricted, because there was no real way to develop sensors for the body. The Teslasuit is something which does exactly that. Imagine wearing a VR suit and headset and being able to see, hear and feel stuff around you? That’s the magic of the Teslasuit. The company behind it is officially celebrating the Red Dot Award for Best Product Design.

Teslasuit is a full body haptic suit, having built in sensors for bridging the gap between the digital and the real world. The haptic feedback system helps you trace any sort of “feeling” in the virtual world back to the real world, seamlessly blurring the lines between digitization and reality. An advanced motion tracking system to check on your movements, as well as a temperature control system to give a idea of what it is like to exist in the virtual world makes it all too realistic. A biometric feedback allows transmission of data like usage patterns and engagement ratio,which aids developers in data collection.


“Our goal was to find a balance between comfort and aesthetics, ergonomics and practical implementation possibilities. Some technologies that formed part of Teslasuit existed before, but never in the form a smart clothing solution. Developing smart clothes that provide an interface between a human body and digital world is more challenging than just packing electronics within a rigid gadget. So the important goal, and the biggest complexity,  was to make interaction between computers and a human body smooth, comfortable and safe. We were creating a design that would be both functional and minimal in its aesthetics”, – said Igor Buturlia, Head of Design at Teslasuit.
