A new shirt can allow football fans to feel some of the physical sensations - such as despair, exhaustion and adrenalin rush - that their favourite players on the field are experiencing.        

Australian telecommunications company, Foxtel, claims to have created the shirt which uses wearable technology to let the user experience physical sensations that athletes go through during a football game.            

These include pressure (to mimic a thumping heart), impact (the shock of a big hit), despair ("the sinking feeling of every costly mistake"), exhaustion (lungs burning with effort) and adrenalin.       

The data is transmitted via Bluetooth from a smartphone app, and the shirt is powered by a lithium polymer cell battery, 'Mashable' reported.           

The makers did not reveal the details of how exactly the shirt works, except that it uses "feedback motors" to transfer sensations to the skin.      

The feedback motors seem to work the opposite way sensors do - instead of receiving stimulus from you, it delivers it.
