Using Haptics to Feel Virtual Worlds

Touch is the single most important sensation that we cannot live without. Touch enables us to effortlessly pick up a glass of water and pull keys from our pockets, without looking. We use touch to validate what we see is real, to navigate the world, to organize cognitive and physical tasks, learn, and to communicate complex information such as trust and caring.
