Extending “out of the body” tactile phantom sensations to 2D and applying it to mobile interaction
The quest for an all-senses virtual reality is not only of abstract research interest, but has numerous marketplace applications. Researchers have known for decades that the brain map of sensation does not necessarily correspond to physical reality. The authors report... more
