VirtualMate Eyes SPA-Skin Wearable Tactile Tech
VirtualMate is looking to the future with the emergence of SPA-Skin, which is said to offer a “realistic replication” of human touch.
According to the company, scientists in Switzerland have advanced haptic feedback technology with an ultra-thin soft-touch material only 500 nanometers thick combined with flexible liquid metal film sensors that conform to the user’s body for a new level of sensory capabilities.
“This ingenious material, made from two different labs under the NCCR Robotics program in Switzerland, has the potential to drastically change how we respond to touch in the virtual world,” VirtualMate’s Jeff Dillon explained. “This tech was absolutely made for the VR porn biz, and we are the perfect partner to introduce this incredible innovation… a soft, wearable material that closely matches human skin and is customizable in a variety of ways to perfectly simulate the sense of connection through touch.”
Dillon noted that while VR technology has come a long way, “tactile sensations in the VR world have been lacking.”
“This new tech can pinpoint and fine-tune the vibratory stimulation that you feel so we can realistically ‘touch’ objects in [VR],” Dillon added. “This is big news for our industry and we can’t wait to work with this new material.”
The VirtualMate game and core system are now available for pre-order ahead of its 2020 release at 60 percent off.
