Haptics device creates realistic virtual textures


Tactile sense is a critical component of how individuals perceive their surroundings. Haptics, or gadgets that create incredibly precise vibrations that replicate the sensation of touch, are one approach to bring the third sense to life.

With the aid of humans, researchers have created a new approach for computers to obtain that genuine texture. The system, dubbed a preference-driven model, harnesses our capacity to discern between the features of different textures as a tool to tune up their virtual equivalents. [Read More…]
