See and feel Virtual Water With This Immersive Crossmodal Perception System from Solidray
Solidray, which is involved in virtual reality production, has released an immersive crossmodal system incorporating visual and tactile feedback, enabling the user to see and feel flowing water in a virtual space.
"When you put on the 3D glasses, the scene appears to be coming towards you. You're looking at a virtual world created in the computer. The most important thing is, things appear life-sized, so the female character appears life-sized before the user's eyes. So, it looks as if she is really in front of you. Also, water is flowing out of the 3D scene. When the user takes a cup, and places it against the water, vibration is transmitted to the cup, making it feel as if water is pouring into the cup."
The glasses have a magnetic sensor, which precisely measures the user's line of sight in 3D. This enables the system to dynamically change the viewpoint in 3D, in line with the viewing position, so the user can look into the scene from all directions.
