Feel Invisible Things – level 1

30-01-2017 07:00

Ultrahaptics is a new technology. It uses ultrasound. The ultrasound is sent to your hand. Your hand can feel something. You feel something, but you touch nothing. It is like magic.

You can feel buttons, for example. This can be good in elevators and hospitals. It is cleaner not to touch something.

Ultrahaptics can be used for virtual reality, too. You can feel anything.

The technology is patented. However, it can take time until people use it in the everyday world.

Difficult words: ultrasound (a type of sound or other vibrations), magic (something which is not real), patented (registered, official).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
