Haptics technology mimics the sense of touch by applying feedback stimuli, such as compression, friction, and vibration forces.
This technology could have several applications, primarily involving more immersive virtual environments, but would also be beneficial in “sensory rehabilitation”, such as recovery from stroke.
MIAT is working on designing and building a prototype glove with haptic feedback capabilities, along with the ability to integrate with virtual reality products, for a more immersive environment.
