      As interesting and immersive as temperature control would be. I think most people would prefer to stay warm in reality, though mentally the power of what you see (if using the Oculus Rift for instance) would have a dramatic effect with what you feel. Which diminishes the need for temperature control. However, there are technologies out already that make the feel of impacts a reality.

      @Wayne.
      Not only that but for a true haptic suit it's not only touch. But imaging walking in a blizzard and your haptic suit suddenly feels very cold. Or you get out of the snow in skyrim and move into a nice and warm inn, you really should get that warm feeling from your suit. That in addition to all the different kind of feels would make it very cool but I really don't see that happening any time soon.

      I would like to state, while watching the second video, the reason I would like a haptic suit is because I would like to feel the game. When someone taps you on the should, gives you a hug, strikes you with lightning, punches you in the gut. That is what I would want/expect from a true haptic suit.

      I know an awesome stretch goal. Free box of deodorant with every Omni :).

      Anyway I love the video. And I have an idea for the shoes.
      Nike has a line of shoes called NikeiD that you can fully customize including the soles. If you can work with them, people might be able to design their own shoes with your soles and then people can get them in any size (I know they go to at least 48.5 European size, in steps of half a size, with even the option for wide fit). They are however far more expensive then the $50 you ask for an extra pair. But you can make something like this: http://store.nike.com/nl/en_gb/product/lunarglide-4-id-running-shoe/…

      Now as for a real stretch goal. Maybe an Omni rug to dampen the sound for that with wooden floors.

      Watching the video I thought of something, in combat situations or stealth you may need to crouch, how does the Omni deal with this, or does it not?

      Well, I'd have to say that for me a stretch goal would be a two-person unit. You guys will find out why soon enough :)

      The T-Shirt is awesome.

      Stretch goals are not mandatory.

      The end.

      Not a big fan of the shirt design but glad things are going great! Can't wait to hear the stretch reward!
