Disney researchers have 3D-printed a futuristic experience where currents of oxygen help users feel on their skin what they see in front of them.

Created by the Disney Research Group, Aireal is an affordable technology that delivers tactile sensations in the air and lets users feel virtual objects and experience textures.

The haptic technology shoots out rings of air that deliver sensations to mimic the related objects’ movements. Almost entirely 3D-printed, the system can also follow virtually projected images and provide the same tactile experience such as imitating the feeling of butterfly wings fluttering while an image of a butterfly is projected onto a hand.

The innovation was recently presented at SIGGRAPH 2013 with potential uses being gaming, gesture control and mobile interfaces.
