Immersion like you’ve never felt it before. Vortx is the world's first environmental simulator for PC gaming that utilizes our unique algorithm to detect game events and bring the action to life.
"It's a unique immersion device built for an era when game developers are pushing at the edges of escapism from every angle, with every human sense."
This is a GREAT first product. But...we want MORE! Yep, more. Give us SMELL...AND wind, AND ambient temperature...THEN, along with a VR setup and a 6-DOF motion platform, we MIGHT then be "satisfied"... But, probably not! Seriously, tho...give us SCENT! It has to have more variety, and LOTS of it, and be constantly updatable. LOVE this idea!
I had a small issue with my vortx and i was expecting to have a hard time with the customer support as it usually is at most places however i was pleasently surprised to see that they were amazing. They kept it simple, found out what the issue was, and found the best solution to have the issue fixed quickly. Seems like an all around great team and great product. If you ever want to feel immersed, this is the product for you. (I have colored bulbs so i turn those on and turn the vortx on and i feel like im in the game or video im watching). Thanks again!
I got mine a couple weeks ago and it does exactly what I wanted, it is a little louder than I expected but no issue when I'm wearing my headset
im clever and an engineering background.... just watched Steve Nexus's teardown of your device.... and i understand what your doing.... its very commendable, but not quiet practical/realistic is it (sorry).... hard to engineer, but here we go....... you contact a gaming house, and in between you, you calibrate your microphone to receive sounds higher than the human ear or animals can hear (dont want to be upsetting our furry friends do we?) that sound is played in response to a game and what its doing.... like cfax in a tv picture, they write the noises into the game which your vortex needs to be more realistic and accurate to the prevailing circumstances.... it can't guess with any real accuracy and this is what it needs... to be told what to do....!!!!! both you and the gaming house then market the game, they are a first with "vortex reality" software enabled in their games, and it advertises your product.... win win in my mind.... and the customers win as well..... 3 way wins are the best !!!..... so, get rid of that fan and use a "be quiet" or other low Db fan as that's also a problem.... sell them in pairs as well like "Stereo"..... now 2 channels would really make a difference, with 2 sets of noises each unit would know which pitch belongs to the left then the right unit...... (harden/thicken them plastic casing sides as well as they could resonate.... thanks) i want royalties for my idea thank you.... but i wont get any... but it's been a pleasure to help you, just needed someone to think out of the box to solve your probs and get your product up and running..... i'll look for my "stereo Vortex MKII" on sale soon enough.... good idea guys/gals... just needed a push in the right direction.... im 58 M from uk.... Good luck implementing this :-))
The Vortx is one of the coolest tech items I’ve purchased In a while. I love the 4D experience that you’re able to immerse yourself in if done properly. My favorite games to play so far with the Vortx are Doom and Battlefield V. Upsides of the Vortx include, nice heat and fan power, good leds that you can tune to match your rgb strips and keyboard, customization and immersion. When it comes to the downsides of the Vortx their are a couple that I have. First off the sMeLL. It doesn’t have a pleasant smell especially if it’s blowing heavy air. It usually has a bad plastic smell that seems like somethings melting on the inside. I just want to open it and stick a car air freshener in. Secondly the noises. Nobody likes loud whirring screeches and when the Vortx is idling it tends to make a slight screech sound that can take away from the immersion and when it is getting those big gust of air it can be pretty loud. And lastly the size. It’s not huge but if you don’t have the space it might hinder your setup. Overall the product is great with a couple not so minor flaws that would be great to see fixed in newer versions. I’d definitely recommend this product to others and I’d be more than happy to test newer versions for others :)
