Vortx Environmental Simulator

Whirlwind FX announces the launch of Vortx for Windows 10, a hardware unit they call the world's first environmental simulator for PC gaming. This is available through the Whirlwind FX website where they offer this trailer with a clever callback to the classic Maxell cassette ad from 1983. Here's more on how they are not just blowing hot air:

Whirlwind FX, today announced the North American launch of Vortx, the world’s first environmental simulator for PCs that augments video games and multimedia. Using proprietary technology to unpack complex audio and visual cues, Vortx reacts in real-time to on-screen stimuli with direct blasts of heated and cool air to simulate wind, explosions, and other action. With an easy plug-and-play USB setup, Vortx works with any game or multimedia experience right out of the box. Vortx is now available for purchase in North America at https://www.whirlwindfx.com/.

Vortx’s EX algorithm is a patented environmental experience engine built to create a physical response to multimedia instantly adjusting to individual playstyles, on-the-fly. A streamlined air deflector within the Vortx forces air through heating elements for precise temperature control which produces effects felt up to six feet away. An adjustable airflow nozzle, along with lighting and temperature controls offer customized settings.

Haha, is this an Onion or other satire site video? This can't be real... #GetBlown is their hashtag? Rofl!

I'll hold out for version 3.0 with Smellovision.

My eyes felt dry and grainy just from watching the trailer for that.

Probably a good way to get a nasty flu when temperatures can shift wildly and blow into your face.
