A holograph projector with images that you can feel

by Gareth Mankoo

When it comes to having the good fortune of handling tangible objects that don’t really exist, one has to bear a price: his sanity. However, you don’t necessarily have to be mad to look at and feel things that don’t exist any more. Thanks to the holograph projector you can actually feel images that are projected with the help of a Holo display, a pair of Wii remotes and an “Airborne Ultrasound Tactile Display”. The tactile display is responsible fore creating a pressure sensation on the skin to simulate touch. A force of up to 1.6 grams can be applied to simulate tangibility of the images.

The video available here is worth a watch as you control a little creature that runs around a user’s hand. It’s really worth a trick to wait for.
