Electro-tactile rendering device virtualises the sense of touch

WeChat Image 20220913141809A collaborative research team co-led by City University of Hong Kong has developed a wearable tactile rendering system that can mimic the sensation of touch with high spatial resolution and a rapid response rate.

The team has demonstrated its potential in a braille display, adding the sense of touch in the metaverse for functions such as virtual-reality shopping and gaming, and potentially facilitating the work of astronauts, deep-sea divers and others who need to wear thick gloves.
