Haptic feedback can give games and other virtual experiences an extra dimension, but it’s hard to achieve. Tech startup Emerge is now having a crack at the idea with the Emerge Wave-1, a device that pairs with a VR headset and emits ultrasonic waves that let users feel virtual objects and sensations.
Founded on shared immigrant stories, and inspired by cutting edge technology. Emerge has created an ultrasound-powered VR product that lets you physically feel virtual reality content and human connections with your bare hands. Pairing the Wave-1 device with a mobile phone app and Oculus Quest 2, people can create a circle of close friends to share visceral experiences with each other.
