Cool stuff: our R&D is working on a tele-haptics and real-time communication system


Cool stuff: our R&D is working on a tele-haptics and real-time communication system with rich emotional
and affective channels
.

Extending the OOTSIDEBOX's touchless-3D-gesture platform with an haptic actuator, we propose to:
  • Improve the emotional immersive experience in virtual and augmented realities.
  • Enhance the social interactivity of real-time messaging users

Our haptic accessory is able to generate tangible tactile sensations

The actuators gently stimulate areas of the skin, driven by the movements of the hand in front of the Touchless -gesture sensitive screen.


Here are some pictures of our actuator early stage prototype:


I think I'll have time to work on it during my stay in San Francisco (from 21 to 26 November), and NOISEBRIDGE will be the ideal place for this kind of hacking stuff.
