CES Weird: Gaming vest makes you feel the pain when you get shot

The woman in this photo is freaking out because she’s wearing the 3rd Space FPS vest by TN games. The technology was supposedly developed for doctors to work via the Internet, but it didn’t fly. In a nutshell, it’s a vest that lets you feel the force of getting shot. The vest has an air source that can fire eight pneumatic cells that are embedded in the vest. Those cells simulate the direction and force of a bullet fired at you in a first-person shooter game.

Am I missing something here? Because I don’t think this one will fly either — who would want to feel what it’s like to get shot? Back to the drawing board, boys. No word on price or availability yet, anyway.
