"Up until now, holography has been for the eyes only, and if you'd try to touch it, your hand would go right through. But now we have a technology that also adds the sensation of touch to holograms."

The technology consists of software that uses ultrasonic waves to create pressure on the hand of a user “touching” the projected hologram.

Researchers are using two Wiimotes from Nintendo’s Wii gaming system to track a user’s hand.

Three years from now, the first tactile-feedback "dating sim" (nudge nudge wink wink say no more) hits Japanese store shelves

But imagine placing those ultrasound arrays like that on either side of a 3D TV, and you have physical feedback for your gaming. You shoot at the TV, and the TV shoots back

Go Ninty! Thats cool, they are using two wiimotes.
It's not Nintendo that made it, the developers just used Wiimotes. Why? I have no idea.

Pointless post much? Couldn't you just say it's cool?


Anyway, that aside, this is old news. I remember seeing it a year ago.

Well, I'd say they used Wiimotes because Kinect wasn't available at the time.

I must admit I do enjoy the arcades that have fans blowing things at me as I ski or whatever.

I wonder if I could get one of those pain ray things (I saw a demo with a fair level of accuracy) and wire it up instead of ultrasound or whatever they end up using.

I might also consider something like those "air blade" hand driers people seem to be enjoying of late and I have a few absorbent polymers that release their water under ultrasound as well. Find a way to crack momentum/impulse and the like and life will be good.

    I rather enjoy a life of taking it easy. I haven't reached that life yet though.

    @SylverReZ if you could find a v5 DS ML you would have the best of both worlds since the v5 units had the same backlight brightness levels as the DS Lite unlockable with flashme

  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    A woman with no arms and no legs was sitting on a beach. A man comes along and the woman says, "I've never been hugged before." So the man feels bad and hugs her. She says "Well i've also never been kissed before." So he gives her a kiss on the cheek. She says "Well I've also never been fucked before." So the man picks her up, and throws her in the ocean and says "Now you're fucked."

    anyways, we need to re-normalize physical media

    if i didn't want my games to be permanent, then i'd rent them

    Agreed, that why I try to buy all my games on disc, Xbox anyways. Switch games (which I pirate tbh) don't matter much, I stay offline 24/7 anyways.

  • cearp @ cearp:
    @BakerMan - you can still "own" digital media, arguably easier and better than physical since you can make copies and backups, as much as you like.

    The issue is DRM
    +1
  • cearp @ cearp:
    You can buy drm free games / music / ebooks, and if you keep backups of your data (like documents and family photos etc), then you shouldn't lose the game. but with a disk, your toddler could put it in the toaster and there goes your $60

    :rofl2:
  • cearp @ cearp:
    still, I agree physical media is nice to have. just pointing out the issue is drm

  • rqkaiju2 @ rqkaiju2:
    i like physical media because it actually feels like you own it. thats why i plan on burning music to cds
  • cearp @ cearp:
    It's nice to not have to have a lot of physical things though, saves space

    Nor clothes 🤮 . Saves on time, soap, water and money having to wash them. :D

    @rqkaiju2, Physical media is a great source for archiving your data, none of that cloud storage shiz.
