Metaverse kissing now possible with tech you can feel
Creepy metaverse users could soon have the power to lunge in for a kiss thanks to new tech.
As if the metaverse wasn’t bad enough with seedy strip clubs and naked avatars, experts want to take the realism a step further.
Scientists have created a device that brings a feeling sensation to the mouth, lips and tongue.
They pulled it off by adding a load of special ultrasonic transducers to a VR headset.
At the moment, the metaverse and VR is largely focused on 360 visuals, sound and hand controls.
Although experts don’t show how it could be used to kiss, you can imagine how it might become a popular use case for virtual lovers.
Instead, they demonstrate the technology being used in various scenarios, such as a haunted adventure game with spiders.
Testers felt sensations on their lips as they walked through webs, creepy crawlers jumped up at their face, and even a sensory feeling from exploding spiders when you shoot them.
Other use cases mimic the sensation from drinking at a water fountain, sipping a coffee, brushing your teeth and even smoking a cigarette.
