Meta reveals a haptic glove prototype that uses air pockets to simulate touching objects in VR.
The glove has been in development for seven years and today they showed it for the first time (here's a video of it in action and a video of Mark Zuckerberg playing with it). The haptic glove reproduces sensations like grasping an object or running your hand along a surface and Meta sees it as the future of VR and AR interaction. The glove, which also acts as a VR controller, is lined with 15 ridged and inflatable plastic pads known as actuators. Link
