@Piero gotta say if you like racing games then a racing rig and a VR headset, simply can't go wrong haha
Hey all, thought I'd share some experiments with Wiimote controllers, take a look at my video which shows what kind of experiences you can have in VR with a hyper realistic Wiimote Controller playing shooting games. The industry has yet to figure out the best input devices for playing in VR, well this is my 2 cents :p
Hey all, check out this other project on KS.
Higher resolution than Oculus rift Cv1
It has hardware eye tracking for faster in game interaction
Eye tracking let's you focus on different depth so not everything is always in perfect focus.
This is the only HMD that can easily achieve the needed 90fps in games as it tracks where your eyes are looking and increases the graphics wherever you are looking so don't need an nvidia 970gtx to achieve solid VR :-)
My vest always turns on automatically and out (=> is switched off, a gentle touch is enough and nice voice appears) someone has also problems with it?
You guys should get in touch with a company called SimXperience! They have a product called SimVibe which is a program for sim racers and it allows them to assign certain actions to transducers. Making the front left transducer only vibrate when the front left suspension squats for instance, would be awesome to see that in this vest! If it could be implemented, worth a suggestion lol
@Rob Welsh Thank you for the kind words! :)
This is the only project I have backed that delivered when it said it would.
@Virtually Real That's very kind of you, thanks for the awesome feedback! :) Glad to help any time we can! :)
My vest would not bind with the control box....Kor-FX paid for it to be returned by courier and once they found it to be faulty they sent by courier a new vest to me. New vest works great. Fantastic to receive such great customer service and open communication....puts many of the projects I've backed to shame where the creators ignore you if you have a problem. Good luck with Kor-Fx and please keep KS backers updated with any future products you release.
@Anthony Adessa Hi Anthony! Once we get word on the new founder edition vests shipping we will be sure to update everyone immediately :)
Any word on the new founder edition vests?
Haha hey I'm a little guy, the vest doesn't fit me all that great thus I get first dibs on V2 :D lol I'm jk
Oh don't worry @Jason Nicholes we definitely didn't forget about you either ;)
Hey! No fair. @Kyle...
@Kyle Miracle Once we have an update on V2 you will be the first to know :)
Can't stop thinking bout how amazing V2 of this is going to be if they do one!
Hi @Tomasz Fiedor, did you follow all of the steps in our set up tutorials, and did you turn the intensity up on the dongle? :)
Am I doing something wrong if all I feel are just vibrations like from normal controller, and they mostly don't correspond well to what is happening in game?
@Jason Nicholes We couldn't have made it happen without you, so thank YOU! :)
The vest makes this game sooooo much better. Played through Borderlands2 on PS3 long ago. (Without the vest)
2015 brings it to the PS4- add in the amazing tech - KOR-FX - shake well and BOOM. Non-stop FUN!
Thanks again. Wow.
@Jason Nicholes We are working on it! In the meantime kick some butt for us ;)
Borderlands PS4 tomorrow. KOR-FX might wear out soon. Please have another one ready... Just in case.
@Piero Bosco We are working on the last few and all refunds should be sent out within the week. If you haven't received a refund from Amazon Payments yet, please email us at email@example.com and we will look into it for you immediately. Thank you Piero! :)
@Have I been refunded the huge amount of money I paid in customs!!?!!
Just had my friend try out the vest with my $900 driving simulator and he LOVED it. Even called up his GF and cammed her while he drove explaining to her how everything worked haha and I will admit the best works great for racing games, honestly better then anything else I've tried. Just sucks cause the best doesn't fit me too well so I won't be driving with it on too often but nonetheless, looking forward to V2.0 :) Actually gonna be letting dad try out the vest soon, should be fun lol
@Jason Nicholes Thank you for your tip:) Nice family!
I do live in germany, but international shipment is no problem. A friend of mine is selling his products all over the world, so I'll use his service. Also the shipment is free!
So again: Contact me if you're interested;)
So they any word on V2.0 yet? I know it seems a bit early but hey, this is a great product and I'm very excited to see what the next version will be like now that the company has the funding and feedback :) just really hoping for adjustable shoulder straps lol
Maybe post your general location to help your sale. Good luck. My family games with me...
Since I've been working the whole day and have a family now, I don't have time for gaming anymore. Therefore the vest would just collects dust. So I'm selling it, to someone who has more time for this nice product.
I'll pick up the vest again from retailers, when I have more time again for gaming and media consumption.
If anyone is interested in buying my vest please contact me ;)
@Tasha Samantha Louise Plaistow no need to worry! We are still in the process of issuing the refunds. Once yours goes through you should receive a notification from Amazon :)
Haven't been reimbursed yet should I worry?
@Anthony Adessa Hi there! The vest does make slight noise when the intensity is turned up high, but nothing that should effect your game play :) We are currently working on the second Founders Edition, and once we have an update for you we will be sure to post it :) So glad to hear you are enjoying the vest!
I've been using this for a while, and I absolutely love it. Two questions. One, is the vet supposed to make noise when I listen to music? I set the volume up all the way on my iPhone 6 and have the setting for vibration intensity on 7 and it feels really cool, but when i take my headphones off(I have my headphones plugged in too) I hear the music plying through the vest pretty loudly. Is there any way to make the vest quiet? Two, any word on when the second founder editions are shipping? I don't mean to Rush you guys and I'm happy to wait even a year if that's what it will take, but just curious. Thanks for such an awesome invention!
@Merien Van der Velden I will be sending you a message!
I returned the vest (due to long waiting and vat costs) and haven't seen reimbursement. Please reimburse to my original payment method (CC) or contact.
It's not for actual combat.
So I've been using the vest for quite a time now and this is my impression:
It's good! Not very good but it creates a good vibration effect which makes the experinece more intense. Soon you don't want to play without it.
What makes my angry is the incredible bad built quality. This is a 5$ product blown up to 180$. The loser is the user. The buttons keep detaching altough I'm not wearing it tight, The stiched seams are bad. The battery case is super fragile and there is already a huge tear behind a pack.
I would buy a KorFX Gaming vest for about 30-40$. Any higher price would be disrespectful.
The built quality doesn't hold up to the functionality!
@Bissmire Hi there! We are still in the process of reimbursing backers who were effected by this :)
Hi, just curious how the International Shipping Tax Refund Process is going?
@KOR-FX my vest should be on it's way back to you. I didn't have £490 spare to pay customs.
@Kyle, change batteries does work. Probably heavy duty type of battery isn't working.
@J Master press and hold the power button for a couple seconds till it says "on".
@Piero you may wanna make sure the dial on the dongle is set low, like 6-7, might help ya. And try messing with the filters and the volume on the vest itself as well.
Erm, got my vest now. How do you power on your vest and hear the "ON" voices?
Is this batteries compatible?
@creator, I played with the audio settings, couldn't get it to have much effect when casting spells which should have an awesome noise :( I have the vest on maximum intensity...
Btw you mention on your videos that there is meant to be a break in period of 30 hours, how much more pronounced to you think the effect is after this time?
I haven't received my vest yet or my tracking number yet
@Ray Rosher I am looking into this right now for you and will be sending you a message!
@Leo Burton That's awesome to hear!! :D
