The Omniwear Arc is a haptic neckband that could be a seriously useful tool for hardcore gamers.
Using vibrations, the neckband offloads some of the more vital on-screen information, such as the minimap, position of teammates, and health.
Using your phone as a second set of eyes, the Arc communicates information about what’s happening in the game using haptic feedback, enhancing your situational awareness without burdening your other senses.
Worn low around the neck, the Arc is embedded with eight haptic actuators that communicate information to the player by varying their intensity and frequency.
The Omniwear is currently in Kickstarter, with $4,662 raised out of $75,000 and 27 days to go.
