The role of touch in mixed reality

Dr Tom Carter, CEO, Ultrahaptics - The role of touch in mixed reality If you’ve ever seen someone experiencing virtual reality, you’ll notice they almost always do one thing: they reach out to touch the digital content in front of them. Our sense of touch provides us with an enormous amount of information about our environment. As such, the field of haptic technology, simulating the sense of touch, is developing at pace. Ultrahaptics has created a technology which enables users to reach out and feel digital content by projecting tactile sensations though the air onto the user’s bare skin, using ultrasound. This talk will cover what this technology brings to mixed realities.
