New virtual reality devices let the gamers feel mud splatter, water, and crawling buds on their lips. VR gaming has come a long way since it was bulky at the beginning. VR gaming is the most common gaming among kids and youngsters nowadays.
Engineers at Carnegie Mellon University have created a new device that lets the gamer feel sensations on the lips, teeth, and tongue.
The device has ultrasound modules called transducers that are attached at the bottom of the VR headset. Transducers create sensory feelings of touch, by shooting out ultrasound waves at your mouth. To achieve the output results the researchers depend on the natural sensitivity of the human mouth.
This creates a haptic experience that lets your lips feel the vibrations that you might encounter in the digital world such as falling rain and water fountains.
