Virtual reality (VR) input remains one of the biggest challenges currently facing the industry. While Oculus VR keeps its work on a potential control solution under wraps many others are presenting their own promising ideas. Ultra Haptics’ Tom Carter will be talking about his own findings at the 2015 South West Virtual Reality Conference (SWVRC) today in a session titled ‘Feeling without touching: where the virtual meets reality’. VRFocus will be liveblogging the talk below.
Ultra Haptics is working on a unique system that gives users feedback in mid-air without the use of controllers. The technology has undeniable potential for use with VR experiences, potentially allowing users to interact with virtual objects and giving them a sensation of feeling without actually touching anything in real life. VRFocus is at SWVRC all day and will be bringing you the latest updates on the technology.
