Tomsk Scientists Engineered Device that Explicitly Stimulates VR Sensations

The developers believe that the device will be used not only in games, but in interaction with robots as well.

Scientists from the Tomsk State University (TSU) are developing a device that operates on the basis of electro-tactile stimulation technology. It can stimulate human sensations during immersion in virtual reality more accurately than similar devices.

The device may be in demand in robotics and the gaming industry, one of its developers, assistant professor of the Department of Space Physics and Ecology of TSU, Sergei Pobachenko assumes.

«In similar equipment, vibration mechanisms are used to create sensations from virtual reality. As for our device, it uses electrodes to stimulate muscle contraction, and these signals more accurately affect the effectors and form patterns of neuronal activity that cause a whole range of sensations: from slight touch to pain,»- he explained.
