A Japanese startup will help users feel pain and touch inside the metaverse
Virtual reality will become even more realistic with the bracelet from H2L Technologies, its creator Emmy Tamaki assures. The girl experienced clinical death in adolescence, she has a congenital heart defect and extremely weak musculature. Real travel is contraindicated to her, so she focused on maximum immersion in virtual worlds in order to give people the opportunity to truly experience different metaverses.
The bracelet from H2L Technologies is designed to create pain sensations with the help of electric discharges, but the concept of “pain” in this case should be interpreted quite broadly. In fact, we are talking about stimulating nerve endings to simulate different sensations. For example, the gravity of virtual weapons in the game, the pain of blows, wind blowing, vibration from the movement of equipment, etc.
Tamaki enlisted the support of Sony and hopes, in her words, “To free people from any restrictions of space, body and time.” And already in the current decade, starting with open-world games and applications for sports in virtual reality. Life is priceless and, according to Tamaki, physical limitations should not interfere with enjoying it.
