We have already seen interactive technologies that create smells or tactile sensations on the pitch. Now, however, the British scientists have developed a system which, they claim, can be used to allow users to experience certain emotions, while it does so, without even touching person.
Known as SenseX, the system includes the existing technology UltraHaptics, which uses phased set of supersonic pulses to produce pulses of ultrasonic energy driven, allowing sufficient radiative forcing, which will feel the human skin. In other words, this system gives a sense of touch (or touch her for something) invisible object that fancies body in the surrounding airspace.
Led by Dr. Marianna Obrist Sciences from the University of Sussex researchers began to study the knowledge gained that different emotions can be caused by touching different parts of the outstretched hand of the user. To see how this might relate to the idea of SenseX, they offered a group of subjects to look closely at five different images – tranquil landscape with trees, kayaking trip on the rapid mountain river, a cemetery, a burning car and the clock on the wall – and then were stimulated hand using UltraHaptics, which reproduced the feelings that those images evoked in the subjects. They have the right to customize the parameters such as position, direction, frequency, intensity and duration of the supersonic stimulation.
The second group then looked at the same images and feel all the same stimulation as the first group, then select the two best stimulation, which, as they thought best to reproduce the emotion caused by each image.
As a result, the third group was “exposed” also first viewing of pictures, and then they are “stimulated” the second group of selected pulses. As a result, all confirmed that the artificial emotions almost exactly match the image obtained by contemplation.
