This New Haptic VR Glove Provides a Realistic Warm/Cold Feeling #wearablewednesday
Thermal feedback stimulation can be used to improve the sense of realism in virtual reality, Via Virtual Reality Times
There have been several development approaches for thermal generation technology in VR that are intended to perceive the feeling of hot or cold in VR.
There are experiments such as the LiquidMask, the futuristic promise of a brain interface as well as various prototypes that have shown some good potential such as ThermoReal, a thermoelectric device developed by TEGway a spinoff of the Korean Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST), which was demo’d during the CES 2020.
Now researchers at the KAIST have come up with a new novel glove for thermal perception in VR. It is a self-sufficient thermal glove which is designed to enable users to feel virtual temperatures in real-time.
