Haptic Gloves

One form of haptic interface is a glove that can provide a sense of touch and/or interaction forces to the user’s fingers.  As the user holds a virtual object in a simulated world, the glove can restrict finger movements to provide the sensation of holding an object.


In the future, such a glove might be worn to “hold” a virtual shirt on an online shopping website and “feel” the texture of its fabric.
