Submission + - Japanese scientists create touchable holograms

bs0d3 writes: Until now, hologram technology has been "for the eyes only" but a Japanese research team has advanced one to incorporate a sense of touch. 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.
