The last decade has been quite a technology explosion leading us rapidly into the digital age. Anyone might think that we are already submerged in this innovative world full of facilities and it is true. However, never before with the way in which the Metaverse intends to take us.
This is a concept that has been in theory for a long time. But during the last three years, with the eventuality of the covid-19 pandemic as an accomplice, much more was developed and put into practice.
Communications through digital methods grew in percentages that exceed 100 and being in person does not seem essential for certain activities. And for this to work more optimally, a better development of the haptic technology.
What is haptic technology?
Haptic technology is basically like having an invisible friend that is constantly touching you, but instead of being a bit eerie and weird, it’s incredibly helpful.
With haptic technology, electronic devices can make you feel things like vibrations and movement, allowing you to have a more immersive and realistic experience.
For example, imagine that you are playing a racing video game on your game console. With haptic technology, the controller would vibrate slightly as has been the case for years with PlayStation and Xbox devices.
Not only is it carried into the world of video games, haptic technology is present in the world of cell phones. If you are using your device, these mechanisms are responsible for making you feel a vibration when you receive a call or text message.
In short, haptic technology is a mechanism that makes you feel things without having to rely on your hands. It has been used for a long time, but over the years it has been improving.
In fact, there are developments of gloves, helmets and devices for other parts of the body that increase the sensory level of a person. The idea is that if I greet you in a virtual meeting through the Metaverse, the receiver and the sender can feel the part where they shake hands.
