Developed by Solidray, the system incorporates visual and tactile feedback to enable people to experience virtual objects.

Virtual reality company Solidray has developed an immersive system that enables viewers to experience objects in 3D and actually feel the actions that they carry out using these objects. For example, in a scene with flowing water, the viewer can put on their 3D glasses, hold out a cup and ‘feel' the water filling it as the cup vibrates in time with the on-screen action. The system incorporates visual and tactile feedback and the cup's position is mapped using an infrared camera.
