+ - Japanese scientists create touchable holograms

Ultrasonic waves are used in order to create pressure on the user hand when it touches a hologram. At this point only simple objects have been tried in testing, but the researchers are already planning for virtual switches at hospitals and in other areas where contamination is a worry."
