• The handshake gadget developed by Miyoshi is simple, and constructed using components readily available on markets. The main parts include the well-known Falcon haptic device, a force sensor, and tele-control algorithm
  • The development of the handshake system demanded the resolution of a problem related to ‘howling’ in the control electronics that led to instability in the ‘virtual handshake’. This problem can be understood as being similar to the loud howling noise that is sometimes generated when a microphone comes too close to a loudspeaker in an auditorium which was resolved by constructing a unique low pass filter that keeps the gain at less than unity, and thereby prevents instabilities in the circuit
  • Miyoshi intended to develop the handshake system for applications including Internet games, remote surgery to give doctors greater feeling during surgical procedures, and hand operated robotic arms used in nuclear power stations managing radioactive materials
