The Haptic Tech That Could Let You Touch The Person You're Skyping With

The Haptic Tech That Could Let You Touch The Person You're Skyping With | cool stuff from research | Scoop.it
I was skeptical. Two cubes sat side-by-side, looking like stripped-down 3D printers. I sat in front of one as instructed, and reached my hand inside, toward a floating disembodied finger. Just at the moment I knew I’d stab through the illusion, I had the ultimate “E.T. phone home” moment—I swear I could feel the other finger pressing on mine.

Gary Hayes's curator insight, July 28, 7:08 PM

Quote "It’s two weeks beforeHenry’s July 28 premiere, and the creative brain-trust of Story Studio is huddled in a dimly lit room (they do meditation in here in the mornings). Ramiro Lopez Dau, the director, is wearing the latest prototype of Oculus’ headset and watching the current version ofHenry—something he’s seen dozens of times. His supervising technical director, Max Planck, is at a computer console, his shoes off; he’s watching the feeds going into both of Lopez Dau’s eyes, while the handful of other employees in the room watch Planck’s display and point out glitches. A ladybug shows up in the wrong color? That’s a Post-it. One of Henry’s eyes looks wonky? That’s another."
