Cerevo Unveils Taclim Virtual Reality Shoes at CES 2017
Posted on January 7, 2017
The Taclim virtual reality shoes have been unveiled at the 2017 Consumer Electronics Show. The shoes let users experience different types of terrain. The Taclim set comes with gloves that also provide haptic feedback.
The Taclim shoes enable the wearer to feel virtual environments like sand or water. The hand and gloves can also be used in VR games to make game play feel more realistic. You can feel the impact when you are battling an enemy.
Cerevo says on its Taclim site, "Imagine walking in a VR game and kicking enemy character, when you hit the enemy's body it naturally feels soft, and when you hit enemy's shield, it feels hard. By using your own hands and feet, your whole body is completely immersed in another world giving you experiences only made possible by Taclim's interactive tactile devices."
The hand and gloves contain a 9-axis sensor and tactile motor. They get 3 hours per charge. Pricing and availability have not yet been announced but CNET reports that the Taclim VR system will be available later this year in the $1,000 to $1,500 price range.
