Wireless devices also use haptic feedback to talk to patient

Last summer, Northwestern University researchers introduced the first-ever transient pacemaker — a fully implantable, wireless device that harmlessly dissolves in the body after it’s no longer needed. Now, they unveil a new, Read more about Wireless devices also use haptic feedback to talk to patient[…]

Ultrasound system targets mouth to create virtual reality haptic effects

Lips are famously sensual but, together with the gums and tongue, they are also surprisingly sensitive, second only to the fingertips in nerve density. Researchers at Carnegie Mellon University have Read more about Ultrasound system targets mouth to create virtual reality haptic effects[…]

Haptic feedback for custom fabricated multichannel bimodal soft robotic armband
