Haptic Helmet improve the safety and efficiency of firefighters

Imagine firefighters trying to navigate through an unfamiliar, burning building full of suffocating smoke and deafening noise. Firefighting is exceedingly dangerous, and the ability for first responders to maintain communications in hostile environments can literally mean life or death. Developing technologies to improve the safety and efficiency of firefighters is challenging because smoke and noise Read more about Haptic Helmet improve the safety and efficiency of firefighters[…]

A new haptic displays that give players tactile feedback

A group of researchers at Osaka University developed a novel two-dimensional (2D) graphical tactile display to which one-dimensional (1D) adhesive information could be added by controlling adhesion of designated portions of the display surface. (Fig.1) Their research results were presented at SIGGRAPH ASIA 2019 Emerging Technologies, which was held in Australia from November 18 through Read more about A new haptic displays that give players tactile feedback[…]

Highly immersive simulation visual, auditory and haptic feedback for sailors training

The Sailors file into the room, their weapons ready and their adrenaline flowing. They operate as a team in a seamless manner. Their mission: to secure an active-shooter situation and apprehend the holographic perpetrator. Commands are given to the shooter, within the augmented-reality (AR) headset. The shooter surrenders, and the Sailors’ mission is accomplished. The Read more about Highly immersive simulation visual, auditory and haptic feedback for sailors training[…]

Haptic feedback through artificial skin to develop a fully wearable prototype

Just like our senses of hearing and vision, our sense of touch plays an important role in how we perceive and interact with the world around us. And technology capable of replicating our sense of touch – also known as haptic feedback – can greatly enhance human-computer and human-robot interfaces for applications such as medical Read more about Haptic feedback through artificial skin to develop a fully wearable prototype[…]

An ultrathin, artificial muscle for haptic robotics

Researchers from KAIST have developed an ultrathin, artificial muscle for soft robotics. The advancement, recently reported in the journal Science Robotics, was demonstrated with a robotic blooming flower brooch, dancing robotic butterflies and fluttering tree leaves on a kinetic art piece. The robotic equivalent of a muscle that can move is called an actuator. The actuator Read more about An ultrathin, artificial muscle for haptic robotics[…]

New formula to recreate different sensations of softness for haptic interfaces

What factors affect how human touch perceives softness, like the feel of pressing your fingertip against a marshmallow, a piece of clay or a rubber ball? By exploring this question in detail, a team of engineers and psychologists at the University of California San Diego discovered clever tricks to design materials that replicate different levels Read more about New formula to recreate different sensations of softness for haptic interfaces[…]
