ForceFeel: The Final Product

ForceFeel: The Final Product

Despite unforeseen setbacks in production, the ForceFeel gaming pad has reached its final stages and is soon to be released to users worldwide.

The delay, which pushed back production about one month, was necessary to test out the types of artificial leather used on the seat to ensure the thermal characteristics of the gaming pad would provide users with the best-simulated gaming experience possible. With the extended production time, the manufacturing facility was able to guarantee a worthy product to be put on the market. 

While production of the ForceFeel gaming pad is finally complete, there will, unfortunately, be a delay in shipping orders as the logistics centre has recently been forced to relocate in central Europe. Due to this last minute move, we will be able to fulfil fewer orders and dispatching of the product will be slowed down. Although unfortunate timing, the transition to a new warehouse is expected to be complete by the close of September. With the completed move, orders should begin to leave the facility in a timely manner.

Realteus would like to extend our sincerest apologies for the unexpected and unfortunate delays in the production and dispatching of the ForceFeel product. It is understood that gamers have been looking forward to the simulated gaming experience that the ForceFeel gaming pad provides, and we hope to meet those expectations once our product is finally in gamers’ hands. 

New Name, Same Virtual Gaming Experience

New Name, Same Virtual Gaming Experience

The ForceFeel brand has undergone a change to enhance the virtual reality gaming experience brand before its release this summer. For customers, this means nothing more than the same product, but a new name. Our goal has always been to create a product that is different than anything else that already exists in the virtual reality gaming market, and because of this, our mission continues to be to enhance the reality of the virtual gaming experience with our products.

With our new brand Realteus, comes a realism addition to our product. With the ForceFeel haptic gaming pad, gamers are immersed into the experience as vibrations are transmitted through the pads eight different sensors, giving the user the sense that they are actually inside of the flight or racing simulation games.

Finally, although originally advertised as ForceFeel, the Realteus brand name has officially an EU trademark registration, just in time for its release before the summer’s end.

What is new on ForceFeel?

Feel at the heart of it all

The ForceFeel is a new force feedback seat, designed with driving and flight simulation games in mind. It places you in the middle of the action as you sense every bump, twist, and turn as you play.

With a brand-new force feedback pad, the ForceFeel seeks to intensify your immersion experience. Not only is it compatible with the third-party software, such as SimShaker, which provides heightened force feedback effects, but it also comes with eight separate vibration zones, which work in real-time with force feedback for the ultimate gaming experience. This allows the ForceFeel to work wonderfully alongside games such as Aerofly 2, Assetto Corsa, DiRT 4, and iRacing, among others.

Can it be used in a bucket seat?

The ForceFeel can also accommodate anyone who would like to use the seat as a bucket seat. This is due to the fact that, following a design review, the length of the whole pad has been shortened, in order to better fit bucket seats.

Currently, the seat is made from synthetic leather. Although we find that the synthetic leather fabric tends to match most customers’ needs, a polyester fabric seat, which offers greater flexibility, should be available shortly if you’d prefer a different material.

Do I need a power adapter for North America which is different than EU?

When you place an order for a ForceFeel, you will receive a ForceFeel pad and controller, user guide, and installation disc. Additionally, every ForceFeel seat comes with a power plug tailored to their region, whether that’s in the USA and Canada, Australia, Europe, or the UK.
