We recently came across the iFeel_IM - a robotic wear that adds human sense of touch to cyberspace. Now, here’s a robotic hand with a similar purpose. This robotic hand plugged into the computer allows people communicating over the internet to experience the sensation of touch, in their conversation. The robotic hand can let the user feel the other person’s (on the other side of the conversation) hand, as if to hold it with compassion or shake it as a gesture, this with the same strength of the actual user. This hand unveiled at the International Technology expo in Hong Kong, isn’t good enough for all the more intricate touches yet, so if you felt (reading this of course) that you could get intimate with your girlfriend over the internet itself, just hold on for a little longer. The robotic hand is expected to make into the market by Christmas this year for £20 (single hand) or £40 for a pair, though it’s currently awaiting a patent.
