A Glove Powered By Soft Robotics To Interact With Virtual Reality Environments

Jun 1, 2017 @ 06:49 |   By Ioana Patringenaru| Engineers at UC San Diego are using soft rob otics technology to make light, flexible gloves that allow users to feel tactile feedback when they interact with virtual reality environments. The researchers used the gloves to realistically simulate the tactile feeling of playing a virtual piano […]

Stanford Researchers unveil Next Generation Virtual Reality Headset

Stanford Researchers unveil Next Generation Virtual Reality Headset

8 August 2015 – Assistant Professor Gordon Wetzstein’s new Stanford Computational Imaging Group has developed a light-field stereoscope that creates a dramatically more natural virtual reality experience than what is present in today’s leading headsets. Try on any virtual reality headset and within a few minutes the sense of wonder might wear off and leave you […]
