AR Haptic Floor Tiles

Augmented-Reality Floor Tiling – [technologyreview.com] Researchers at McGill University in Montreal, Canada have developed floor tiles that can simulate the look, sound and feel of snow, grass or pebbles underfoot. Such a tool could perhaps be used for augmented reality applications, tele-presence, training, rehabilitation or even as virtual foot controllers. The modular “haptic” floor tiling […]

Wireless Body Area Network

WBAN wireless networks operating in compact devices that are worn in clothing or embedded into the body will collect and communicate a variety of data, including bio-medical telemetry, personal statistics, haptic feedback control data, cosmetic appearance control data and short range interface I/O with other systems. Groundbreaking Study of Wireless Body Area Networks Made Possible […]
