Microsoft vets join VR startup that offers full-body, fully immersive experience

Virtual reality, in its current form, is an exclusively audio/visual medium, with a large focus on the way things look. Touch is mostly a one-way experience if it’s considered at all, using clunky controllers to “touch” virtual objects. But AxonVR wants those virtual objects to touch back. The company, which is just coming out of a four-year stealth period, is developing technology that allows users to move through virtual environments and feel the size, shape, weight, texture, and temperature of virtual objects. Using exoskeleton-like hardware, VR software and a “smart textile,” users can experience deeper immersion in virtual environments.

This is not how to treat your pre-order customers.
