Squeeze Virtual Reality With Cyborg Glove
What if you could actually grasp the sword you pick up in a video game, or if surgeons could feel their robots hit bone? That's the promise of the Tactilous glove, which won this weekend's Upverter + Y Combinator Hardware Hackathon. Watch as we demo the Frankenstein-meets-Nintendo contraption that lets you touch objects in virtual reality.
Duct tape, twine, and a whole lot of hot glue. That's how Jack Minardi and his team forged the Tactilous in just eight hours. Minardi, a Python researcher for Enthought by day, said he gravitated to hardware hacking because "I could tell a computer exactly what to do, but I wanted to be able to tell the world what to do."
