Submission + - Wii Remote Used For Holograms You Can "Touch&# (kotaku.com)

KPexEA writes: Using a concave mirror, Airborne Ultrasound Tactile Display and Wii Remotes, University of Tokyo researchers have created a tangible hologram projector.

The mirror makes the hologram appear to be "floating" in air, while the Airborne Ultrasound Tactile Display shoots focused ultrasonic waves to create the feeling of a holographic ball or holographic rain falling on one's hand.

The Wii Remotes? They're used to track movement — just one of many non-gaming use scientist people are finding for Nintendo's hardware.
