H2L Technologies, a Sony-backed Japanese company, has created a meta wristband. The technology would allow users to feel the weight of themselves and other things in a virtual world while replicating physiological movement.
Electric simulation is utilized to move arm muscles and mimic feelings like squeezing your skin, squishing a ball, or clutching a weight! Emi Tamaki, CEO of H2L, believes that virtual pain will turn the metaverse into a real-world environment with real-world immersion and presence. The advancement of haptics technology is unsettling!
Emi Tamaki was in her early teens when she had a near-death experience owing to a cardiac condition. This is when the germ of an idea sprouted. She invented a mechanism for replicating and connecting physiological feelings to computers! The haptic technology researcher intends to liberate individuals from all geographical, physiological, and temporal constraints by 2029! H2L will make the notion a reality with its wide collection of technologies and tools.
As previously indicated, humans will soon be allowed to live in the Metaverse. The company is investing in the next generation of virtual reality, which will incorporate immersive technologies such as sensation and even fragrance! According to Zucker, humans will migrate to the metaverse in the near future!
While this may seem futuristic to the uninitiated, we now live in a digital eco-system in which information and data are continuously traveling about our screens. In some ways, we’ve already entered Meta’s cocoon. Only time will tell what comes out of Meta’s chrysalis.
Tamaki, on the other hand, believes that this technology will allow people with chronic debilitating illnesses like her to travel anywhere they want, whenever they want!
