Artificial Muscles Gives Haptic Feedback Glove | CoolBusinessIdeas.com

Connected gloves that transmit haptic feedback to the user, be it from objects in distant locations or virtual reality environments, could certainly open up some interesting possibilities. Scientists in Australia working in this field have demonstrated a new device they say offers a more realistic experience than previous solutions, by making use of soft artificial muscles that more closely resemble our sense of touch.

The device was developed by researchers at the University of New South Wales (UNSW) and is similar to others we have looked at in the space, in that the haptic sensations felt by one user are relayed to another, no matter the distance between them. In a general sense, these make uses of sensors that record the forces felt by the human hand, and then wirelessly recreate them for remote users.
