The tactile glove will allow gamers to feel the virtual world

Recently, there has been a definite tendency among manufacturers of numerous game consoles - to give virtual reality real physical sensations. The popular Oculus Rift and Sony Morpheus are currently limited to purely audiovisual effects.

In this regard, it is not surprising that students are often found among the developers of new gaming devices. For example, Rice University engineering students have developed a prototype glove that allows gamers to literally feel objects as they play.

The device, called the Hands Omni, has a forceful reverse touch sensation. If, for example, during the game you happen to hold an apple or a pomegranate in your hand, then you will really feel them in your hand.

The idea of ​​young game designers is to develop special software Hands Omni, which at the right time activates a network of small inflatable balloons in a glove. They put pressure on the fingertips.

The glove is cordless, weighs only 350 grams and is designed to be as discreet as possible.
