You Can Now "Feel" Stuff In VR


Here's an invention that must have had its designers high-fiving. Virtually and literally.

A team of engineering students at Rice University in Houston, Texas, have created the Hands Omni VR glove. A prototype "haptic glove", it uses tiny inflatable bladders in the fingertips to let you feel objects, as well as see them, in virtual reality. 

The Hands Omni’s development is being sponsored by gaming company Virtuix, who want to create a glove for next-gen gamers.

Virtuix have previously been responsible for the Omni, a multi-directional treadmill, which allows gamers to run around any VR universe. Just imagine playing Doom on that. Incredible.

The Hands Omni is wireless, weighing a mere 12oz. Though it’s not ready to go into production yet, it does at least work.

Looks like that fully-immersive VR version of Knightmare is getting ever closer, guys.
