Lightweight Battery-Powered Haptic Glove Lets You Touch VR Objects
A research team from EPFL in Lausanne and ETH in Zurich have developed a haptic feedback glove that is both lightweight and low-powered, which allows users to touch and hold virtual objects
At a mere 40 grams (or 8 grams per finger), the glove runs on only 200-volts of battery power, and can simulate the tactile experiences of both very hard and very soft objects.
Queue the dirty jokes, but this represents a major step forward in the development of interactive Virtual Reality technology, which is finally moving into the mainstream after many previous failed attempts.
