According to NVIDIA's blog post, it looks as though the company has teamed up with AxonVR to create a full body haptic feedback system that allows you to "feel" virtual reality. Check out the full body rig concept art in the images below:

AxonVR is bringing lifelike touch to digital experiences through advanced haptic technology. The heart of AxonVR’s platform is HaptX, a haptic textile that lets users feel the physical properties of virtual objects. This includes texture, shape, motion, vibration and temperature. HaptX can bring the sense of touch to any surface. You can integrate it into wearables like gloves and even full-body suits. These wearables can be paired with the HaptX Skeleton, a lightweight exoskeleton that applies physical forces to the wearer’s body. Together, these technologies bring digital experiences to life with unprecedented realism.
