Reach Out & Grab Hold: Dexmo Exoskeleton Takes Virtual Reality to the Next Level

Most of us have still have so many faraway places we’d like to see, sports and activities we’d like to try, not to mention a host of dreams that we, well, dream of fulfilling. That bucket list can get a nice nudge today though with a little help from our friends in technology. While we’ve […]

The 'Guided Hand' Uses a Haptic Interface Robotic Arm to Help You 3D Print Freehand

One of the cooler 3D printing gadgets to come along in the last few years is the handheld 3D printer pen that allows users to freehand 3D objects using plastic filament. Unfortunately, you really are going to need to be a little artistic in order to actually be able to print something that doesn’t look like […]

This Submersible 3D Printed Haptic Sonar Glove Lets You Feel Things Underwater Without Actually Touching Them

The concept behind haptic communication is quite simple, however the science that makes it possible is much more complicated. The basic process involves the simulation of a sense of touch and tactile contact using vibrations or air pressure being placed on or against a person’s body. The difficulties in making haptic technology work are in […]

3D Printed Animotus Is a Handheld Smart Cube That Guides the Visually Impaired through Touch

We’ve followed numerous 3D printed innovations that have been created for the purpose of helping the visually impaired, from navigational-oriented methods to get around campuses, to ways to ‘view’ art exhibits and even a 3D printed Rubik’s Cube for left-brained recreation. Now, there’s another cube on the horizon, but it serves on several levels simultaneously. Working as an incredible […]
