Pebble Feel is a new device that brings unique sensations to digital space.
Pebble Feel is a revolutionary gadget that adds fresh feelings to the digital world. Users can sense temperature variations while exploring digital areas in the metaverse thanks to wearable technology that can heat and cool them.
Shiftall developed the technology, which it hopes to use in conjunction with Panasonic to help speed its metaverse company. At CES 2022, the tech giant unveiled a slew of new virtual reality devices, including the ultra-lightweight MeganeX headgear. By integrating temperature management to digital space, the Pebble Feel takes its metaverse ideas to the next level.
The “personal air conditioner” is a device capable of adjusting a body’s temperature.
‘Personal air conditioners’ are 60-gram devices that regulate the body’s temperature. It requires the use of a harness or specific garment, which does not appear to be included with the purchase. Using SteamVR apps such as VRChat, you can experience temperature variations once it’s connected.
It may reach temperatures as low as 48 degrees Fahrenheit and as high as 107 degrees Fahrenheit. In medium cooling mode, it will last 15 hours on a charge, and in medium heating mode, it will last 25 hours. It should be used in temperatures ranging from 41 to 104 degrees Fahrenheit, according to Shiftall.
Shiftall puts a heavy emphasis on the metaverse when talking about the device
Shiftall emphasizes the gadget’s use in the metaverse, but it may be applicable to people who want a personal air conditioner of the digital realm. Besides supporting SteamVR, the device is also compatible with iOS and Android phones. It merely requires a Bluetooth v5.0 connection.
The Pebble Feel will be available in the spring and will cost roughly $200.
