Contact Glove can accurately recreate the sensation of touching objects in the VR space.
A tactile feedback module using shape memory alloy (SMA) coils applies force to the ball of your
finger to replicate the sensation of touching or grasping an object.
Current tactile feedback gloves heavily rely on vibration motors to simulate the sense of touch.
Tactile feedback using vibration motors has the advantage that the device can be made smaller;
however, it is not realistic.
We have developed a module that can apply pressure to the ball of your finger in the same way as
when touching or grasping an object in real life, and we have made it affordable and compact enough
to be used by consumers.
