Pervasive Media Studio Lunchtime Talk: UltraHaptics

Where: Pervasive Media Studio, Watershed, 1 Canon's Road, Bristol, BS1 5TX

When: 11 May 2012 12:00pm to 1:00pm

UltraHaptics is a multi-point haptic feedback system that allows users to experience haptic feedback simultaneously in multiple locations. This feedback is created in mid-air ??? so users don???t have to touch or hold any device to experience it. The use of ultrasonic vibrations is a new technique for delivering tactile sensations to the user. In essence, a series of ultrasonic transducers emit very high frequency sound waves. When all of the sound waves meet at the same location at the same time, they create sensations on a human???s skin. Sriam Subramanian from University of Bristol will introduce this ground breaking new system and invite you to consider what real world applications might be designed to make use of this exciting new technology. More information on UltraHaptics can be found at http://big.cs.bris.ac.uk/projects/ultrahaptics These Lunchtime Talks are part of Open Studio Friday, which takes place at the Studio every week.
