An untethered virtual-haptic reality

Seismic waves, commonly associated with earthquakes, have been used by scientists to develop a universal scaling law for the sense of touch. A team, led by researchers at the University of Birmingham, used Rayleigh waves to create the first scaling law for touch sensitivity. The results are published in Science Advances. The researchers are part of Read more about An untethered virtual-haptic reality[…]

A new haptic device which recreates the sense of touch

What if you could touch a loved one during a video call – particularly in today’s social distancing era of COVID-19 – or pick up and handle a virtual tool in a video game? Pending user tests and funding to commercialise the new technology, these ideas could become reality in a couple of years after Read more about A new haptic device which recreates the sense of touch[…]

World’s first high precision haptic technology which allows the robot to recreate the sense of touch

The New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organization (NEDO) and Keio University (Assistant Professor Takahiro Nozaki and Professor Toshiyuki Murakami at the Faculty of Science and Technology Department of System Design Engineering and the Haptics Research Center [Keio Advanced Research Centers]) have successfully developed a double arm robot (general purpose arm) that transmits physical sensations.
