    Wow... Looks just like an actual golfing cagoule and field pants set...!

    No mention of these coming in different sizes, or whether they're washable (machine or otherwise)?
    I imagine these will both be high on the priority list, what with us stereotypical fat gamer bois getting all hot and sweaty during those intense Call of Battlefield VR sessions.... and no, I'm only half-joking about that.

    Given what normally causes early adoption of new technologies I imagine a lot of the first ones released will wear out the groin sensors fairly quickly.

    You can find samples on Youtube (pre 2010) of one webcam providing decent body tracking. I much prefer the optical approach as opposed to strapping on trackers and / or wearing a body suit.

    This reminds me of the AR machine on Starbug in Red Dwarf.

    Where's the groinal attachment?

    From the book, yes From that godawful film that needs erasing from history, not so much.

    Very tempted to back this but not sure I can justify the £900 investment at the moment for what will certainly be a Gen 1 device. Certainly one to watch - maybe I could get a glove thats more affordable
