    UnlimitedHand: Touch and Feel the Game World

    Gear  /  Projects
    Japanese Tokyo-based H2L has created the UnlimitedHand will let you feel virtual reality.  the UnlimitedHand looks, and is worn, almost like an iPhone exercise arm band, sans iPhone. But inside this armband is a haptic sensor, as well as an array of tiny, multi-channel electronic muscle stimulators (EMS). The haptic sensor can measure how you are moving your arm, and move it accordingly within a VR world; meanwhile, the EMS array sends a series of finely tuned electronic pulses coursing through your muscles, allowing you to feel low-granular sensations like resistance, or even discomfort.  According to H2L, the UnlimitedHand can be used to simulate bodily encounters, like the sensation of touching, pinching, stroking, or grabbing onto something in a virtual world. It can also simulate pain, although one imagines without too much fidelity, since H2L calls it "occasions of being inflicted within damage within games."  
    "UnlimitedHand consists of the muscle sensor, 3D motion sensor,  multi-channel electronic muscle stimulator (EMS) and vibration motor. With motion sensor and muscle sensors, users can input their hand and finger motion. Moreover, the device can output finger motion with EMS as a feedback from the video game. By integrating this technology into our game controller, affects such as bodily encounters and occasions of being inflicted with damage within games can be felt in person.   "
    Currently on Kickstarter, the UnlimitedHand's downside seems to be cost: they start at $188.
