Get ready to redefine your experience with holographic projections with the recent invention of the haptic hologram by the engineering team at the University of Glasgow. Using their innovative technique called “aerohaptics,” users can now feel the sensation of physically interacting with holographic projections. Their system mixes the volumetric display technology with precisely controlled airflows directed towards the user’s hand movements, allowing the creation of touch sensations on the palms and fingertips. They track user movements using leap-motion sensor technology to direct airflows accurately. The new research has been published in the journal Advanced Intelligent Systems.
What is aerohaptic?
Aerohaptic is a technique developed by the engineering team at the University of Glasgow, which combines volumetric display technology with precisely controlled airflows directed towards a user’s hand movements, creating touch sensations on the palms or fingertips.
What is hologram technology?
Hologram technology is an advanced imaging technology that creates a three-dimensional image using laser technology. It is well-known because it creates a projection of the image that appears to be floating, separate, and without the use of special glasses.
The Final Verdict
The revolutionary haptic hologram technology using aerohaptic by the University of Glasgow engineering team has transformed the user experience with holographic projections. It adds new dimensions to virtual reality and immersive technology, as users can now feel touch sensations while interacting with holograms. With volumetric display technology and precisely controlled airflows, it is a groundbreaking invention that promises much for future tech advancements.
