Discovery for gamers: Georgian vest-kit with sensors will let you feel the game
Givi Beridze and his group are one of the winners of hi-tech business ideas contest called Startup Georgia.

Their idea is going to be a real discovery for gamers around the world. Givi Beridze told Businesspressnews that their project will give the users an opportunity to not just play but live the game.

“The project is real laser games. This is a vest-kit fully covered with sensors. When a laser beam falls on a sensor, the vibration engine is activated behind it and you have an impression that the bullet really hit you,” Givi beridze says.

The game is played by real people and they are equipped with these kinds of vest-kits. The player who is ‘hit’ by the bullet, will feel the vibration on the particular area of the vest-kit.

Beridze says this vest-kit is the improved version of the one that is already available around the world. At this stage, there exists a technology that allows only three pieces of sensors.

“As for our product, it is fully covered with numerous sensors and it leaves particular feelings, as opposed to the currently available vest-kits, which only give out lights. At first we plan to sell our product in Georgia and we hope to cross the borders some time soon,” Beridze says.

The group consists of six members and they have been working on this new project for 8 months already. Before they got the necessary funding, they tried to implement their idea and create a prototype of the
vest-kit with their own money.

After winning the contest, the group received GEL 100 000 (app. $43 000) and at the first stage, they plan to produce and sell 20 vest-kits.
