In a bid to make virtual reality more immersive, Japanese design brand H2L has created the UnlimitedHand. The device is strapped to a users forearm and combines haptic feedback with multi-channel electronic muscle stimulators to allow anyone to feel what’s happening in the virtual world. The band can replicate sensations such as touching, pinching, grabbing and it can even simulate pain although the H2L have noted it is more of a ‘resistance’ in order to detect whether damage has been inflicted when playing first person shooters. Another great feature is that the associated software seems easily integrable meaning its adaptation can be applied to a variety of different VR programs. Check out UnlimitedHand on Kickstarter now.
