    3. Creator David Mortensen on June 3

      Thanks @Creator for the answer :)

      @lucyferror Hi there, you should have received your refund already. If you could please email us at info@korfx.com we can look into this further. Thank you :)

    5. Creator KOR-FX (Immerz, Inc) on June 2

      Hi @David Mortensen once we have a ship date we will make an update about it immediately :)

    6. Creator lucyferror on June 2

      I left you few messages regarding it, but got no response...

    7. Creator lucyferror on June 2

      Hi. How is refunding of import duties going? Last message from you was in FEBRUARY and nothing since then. No refund or anything :/

    8. Creator David Mortensen on June 1

      @Creator - still not heard anything yet regarding the extra KorFX silver vests?

    9. Creator Kyle Miracle on May 25

      @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.

      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/fove/fove-the-worlds-first-eye-tracking-virtual-reality/description

      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?

    13. Creator Kyle Miracle on May 13

      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

    14. Creator KOR-FX (Immerz, Inc) on May 12

      @Rob Welsh Thank you for the kind words! :)

    15. Creator Rob Welsh on May 9

      This is the only project I have backed that delivered when it said it would.

    16. Creator KOR-FX (Immerz, Inc) on April 27

      @Virtually Real That's very kind of you, thanks for the awesome feedback! :) Glad to help any time we can! :)

    17. Creator Virtually Real on April 25

      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.

    19. Creator Anthony Adessa on April 16

    20. Creator Kyle Miracle on April 15

      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

    21. Creator KOR-FX (Immerz, Inc) on April 14

      Oh don't worry @Jason Nicholes we definitely didn't forget about you either ;)

    22. Creator Jason Nicholes on April 14

      Hey! No fair. @Kyle...

    23. Creator KOR-FX (Immerz, Inc) on April 13

      @Kyle Miracle Once we have an update on V2 you will be the first to know :)

    24. Creator Kyle Miracle on April 12

      Can't stop thinking bout how amazing V2 of this is going to be if they do one!

    25. Creator KOR-FX (Immerz, Inc) on April 6

      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? :)

    26. Creator Tomasz Fiedor on April 5

      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?

    27. Creator KOR-FX (Immerz, Inc) on March 26

      @Jason Nicholes We couldn't have made it happen without you, so thank YOU! :)

    28. Creator Jason Nicholes on March 25

      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.

    29. Creator KOR-FX (Immerz, Inc) on March 24

      @Jason Nicholes We are working on it! In the meantime kick some butt for us ;)

    30. Creator Jason Nicholes on March 23

      Borderlands PS4 tomorrow. KOR-FX might wear out soon. Please have another one ready... Just in case.

    31. Creator KOR-FX (Immerz, Inc) on March 2

      @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 info@korfx.com and we will look into it for you immediately. Thank you Piero! :)

    32. Creator Piero Bosco on March 2

      @Have I been refunded the huge amount of money I paid in customs!!?!!

    33. Creator Kyle Miracle on February 9

      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

    34. Creator Jan-Philipp Lynker on February 8

      @Jason Nicholes Thank you for your tip:) Nice family!

    35. Creator Kyle Miracle on February 5

      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

    36. Creator Jason Nicholes on February 3

      Maybe post your general location to help your sale. Good luck. My family games with me...

    37. Creator Jan-Philipp Lynker on February 2

      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 :)

    39. Creator Tasha Samantha Louise Plaistow on January 25

      Haven't been reimbursed yet should I worry?

    40. Creator KOR-FX (Immerz, Inc) on January 21

      @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!

    41. Creator Anthony Adessa on January 20

      Hey,
      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!

    42. Creator KOR-FX (Immerz, Inc) on January 20

      @Merien Van der Velden I will be sending you a message!

    43. Creator Merien Van der Velden on January 17

      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.

    44. Creator Jason Nicholes on January 13

      It's not for actual combat.

    45. Creator Jan-Philipp Lynker on January 12

      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!

    46. Creator KOR-FX (Immerz, Inc) on January 12

      @Bissmire Hi there! We are still in the process of reimbursing backers who were effected by this :)

    47. Creator Bissmire on January 12

      Hi, just curious how the International Shipping Tax Refund Process is going?

    48. Creator Simon Jenkins on December 28, 2014

      @KOR-FX my vest should be on it's way back to you. I didn't have £490 spare to pay customs.

    49. Creator J Master on December 24, 2014

      @Kyle, change batteries does work. Probably heavy duty type of battery isn't working.
