A VR simulator

Hypersuit, a Paris-based startup, has spent the past year developing this VR simulation rig and showed it off at the CES Unveiled event Tuesday night.

The piece is meant to engage the whole body in a flying VR game the company created, allowing someone to feel more immersed in the experience. "We want the player to be in the game," Hypersuit co-founder Tom Sicard said. "Not just through his eyes, but his whole body."

Expected later this year

The demo used an HTC Vive VR headset, as well as a fan to bolster that flying feeling.

The company said it plans to start offering the Hypersuit in mid-2017.

Don't make room for it in your finished basement

Hypersuit's Sicard said his company doesn't expect to sell the piece directly to consumers. Instead, the company plans to offer Hypersuit as rentals to theme parks, malls, movie theaters and casinos.
