This teeny-tiny article needs some work. You can help us by expanding it.
The Interactor is a wearable Sega Mega Drive (and Super Nintendo) accessory released by Aura Systems in 1994. It was advertised as being a virtual reality device, in which the player would be able to "feel" actions in games (e.g. if punched, the player would be given a physical bump), a form of haptic feedback.
In reality the Interactor is a glorified set of stereo speakers, compatible with any device with a standard headphone output (though specific cables were offered for easier use with the two aforementioned consoles). It uses sound to create pulses near the user's chest or back - it has no way of discerning what happens on screen.
