UC San Diego unveils amazing VR tactile glove made using soft robotics and 3D printing

A team of researchers from the University of California San Diego is using 3D printing and soft robotics to develop smart gloves that give tactile feedback to users from virtual reality environments. Still in their prototyping stage, the innovative robotic gloves have been successfully used to simulate the feeling of playing a virtual piano. As virtual reality games and environments are becoming increasingly realistic (or fantastic!), one area that has been lagging a bit behind is tactile response. Currently, most tactile feedback comes in the form of a vibrating remote, which buzzes when users encounter something in their VR […]
