Robotic glove lets users feel images

Wearer can take hold of 3D images.

A subsidiary of NTT has developed the technology to make 3D images viewable without special equipment, and a glove that allows users to ‘feel’ the images.

NTT Comware has developed what it calls ‘Tangible-3D Technology’, which uses twin cameras to produce an easily viewed 3D image. A glove loaded with sensors can then be passed over the image to let the user feel the shape and texture.

“This technology reproduces the physical feel of 3D video at a remote location as well as allowing the viewer to reach out and ‘touch’ the person or object on the screen by means of a special device,” said the company in a statement.
