Cambridge, M.A. (PRWEB) June 09, 2014

Immerz, Inc., an award-winning developer of cutting edge products and technologies, today announced the launch of a Kickstarter campaign for its KOR-FX Gaming Vest. The wireless KOR-FX Gaming Vest has proprietary acousto-haptic 4DFX technology to transform game audio into pinpoint high-definition feedback which allows gamers to actually feel the action for a more immersive gaming experience. In addition to gaming, the plug-and-play vest brings an entirely new dimension to experiencing movies, music and other media. Kickstarter backers will be the first to experience the KOR-FX Gaming Vest first-hand, and will enjoy special Kickstarter backer-pricing. The Kickstarter campaign page can be found at: http://www.korfx.com/Kickstarter.

The KOR-FX Gaming Vest turns the player’s chest cavity into an instrument that echoes game audio throughout the torso with extremely accurate magnitude and directionality. Multiple adjustable haptic filters and control settings allow gamers to fine-tune sensitivity of environmental feedback to customize their gaming experience. The KOR-FX Gaming Vest creates a new level of in-game situational awareness, and when combined with the latest virtual reality technologies, the vest delivers the tactile component of a completely immersive experience.

Immerz is offering an array of Kickstarter backer incentives, some limited edition offers include 500 units at special “early-bird” pricing ($135) and 100 limited edition “Silver Founder’s Edition” units autographed by the KOR-FX team ($250). Additional incentives include recognition on the company website, t-shirts just for backers, and Kickstarter backer-only updates. Immerz will demonstrate the KOR-FX Gaming Vest publicly for the first time at the 2014 E3 Expo in Los Angeles.

“After five years of development and honing the KOR-FX Gaming Vest’s technology, we are excited to have our first production model ready to go at E3,” said Immerz CEO, Seth Fandetti. “We thank everyone who has helped us get this far, and we look forward to giving the gaming community a product they’ve been asking for.”

The KOR-FX Gaming Vest is designed to be plug and play with consoles, PCs, tablets, smart phones, and almost any device with a standard 3.5mm audio output port. A dongle connected to the player’s system provides a wireless connection to the vest, allowing users to move freely. The lightweight, adjustable vest is constructed with the highest-quality materials, and designed to fit most body types. In the future, Immerz plans to launch a SDK for developers and enthusiasts looking to integrate the KOR-FX Gaming Vest into their new projects.
