I feel bad.
I feel bad because I’ve known about Disney’s AIREAL technology for weeks now and I didn’t share the stories with you.
AIREAL is a new low cost, highly scalable haptic technology that delivers expressive tactile sensations in mid air. AIREAL enables users to feel virtual objects, experience dynamically varying textures and receive feedback on full body gestures, all without requiring the user to wear a physical device.
Consider this video from the wizards at Disney Research Labs my mea culpa. If it doesn’t satisfy, this write-up at Wired will make you even more anxious to try the system out.
