    on October 15, 2018 at 4:00 am

    (Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne) Scientists from EPFL and ETH Zurich have developed an ultra-light glove -- weighing less than 8 grams per finger- that enables users to feel and manipulate virtual objects. Their system provides extremely realistic haptic feedback and could run on a battery, allowing for unparalleled freedom of movement. […]
