Virtual Reality You Can Feel

Gizmodo points us to some interesting news - full-sensory virtual reality immersion has just taken another big step. Researchers from The University of Tokyo have combined motion tracking, holograms and ultrasonic waves to create virtual animations you can see, interact with - and feel. The ultrasonic waves are able to simulate a variety of textures and can focus in on very specific locations, making for a very realistic tactile experience.

Watch a video demo below.
