As the business of virtual reality heats up, engineers and software developers have been working on technology that will allow users to touch virtual objects while also feeling like they are touching, grasping and manipulating real objects. Innovations in this area have already included a full-body VR suit and a real-world holodeck. Now, scientists from Ecole Polytechnic Federale Lausanne (EPFL) and ETH Zurich have developed an ultra lightweight glove that enables users to feel and manipulate virtual objects. The system weighs less than 8 grams per finger and could be run on just a small battery.
