Microsoft Research demonstrate actuator which allow feeling virtual objects in 3D space

Microsoft Research has demonstrated a new mechanically-actuated hand-held controllers that render the shape of virtual objects through physical shape displacement, enabling users to feel 3D surfaces, textures, and forces that match the visual rendering. They have published the results of their investigations in the Proceedings of the 29th Annual Symposium on User Interface Software and Tec
