Forget virtual reality goggles — now you can have a whole VR suit

Have you ever wanted to feel the force of an explosion? The sting of a pirate's cutlass? An elf's gentle caress? If you're already spending a lot of free time in virtual reality goggles, you'll love the Hardlight VR Suit ($549), whose 16 haptic feedback zones direct vibrations to individual muscle groups. Due to ship in September, the suit connects to VR goggles and a PC. Though it isn't the first haptic suit, it's an advance, and "it's cool to know soon we'll all be encased in what looks like dirt bike armor as we flail around our living rooms dodging war hammers and drone fire."
