You have to agree, it sounds unusual. The wonder of technology was created by the French company Arcadeo. The name of the product is also Arcadeo. It is designed for deep immersion gaming.

Immediately catchy is the backlight. It can be adjusted to the owner's taste. Looks Arcadeo is not worse than analogues. The most important thing is hidden inside. Under the upholstery there are vibration motors. There are 10 of them in total.

These mechanisms give a tactile response. They respond to certain elements of gameplay. For example, on hits on the hero. In addition, Arcadeo allows you to watch movies. Vibrations are synchronized with what is happening in the movie.

The "stuffing" is controlled by a 16-core chip. Such powerful solutions have not been used before. Unfortunately, there is no information about the characteristics. The developers are in no hurry to publish the specs.

Arcadeo connects to computers, consoles and virtual reality helmets. The USB Type-C port acts as an interface. It is also available to control via smartphone. A proprietary application is available.

Alas, the price "bites". Approximate cost is $ 800. It will be released by the end of 2020.
