ThermoReal Technology Can Make You Feel Hot, Cold and Pain in Virtual Reality
A Korean developer and manufacturer of thermoelectric generators are using their new technology in the virtual/augmented reality and gaming realms. They want to dramatically heighten the realism experience by simulating various physical sensations such as pain, and rise and drop in temperatures. They call their technology ThermoReal, which can be integrated into hardware products used in VR, AR, and gaming devices.
Adding the sense of touch to virtual reality
Current VR, AR, and gaming technology only provide vision and hearing sensations to create an immersive display. But TEGway, a Korean developer and manufacturer of flexible thermal modules, is aiming to bring the sense of temperature into VR/AR and gaming experience.
