Testers felt sensations on their lips as they walked through webs, creepy crawlers jumped into their faces, and even a sensory sensation of spiders exploding when you shoot them.

Other use cases mimic the feeling of drinking at a water fountain, having a coffee, brushing your teeth, and even smoking a cigarette.

“Haptics increase realism and immersion, and increase user response,” said researchers at Carnegie Mellon University.

world (a high bar).

“However, it is somewhat comparable to vibration motors in handheld controllers and many cell phones, but with more spatial expression.

“Nevertheless, we believe that VR/AR systems should strive for more realism, and future work is needed to expand our work.”
