• One application for Impacto is if you’re playing a fighting game, now you can “feel” a blow when you get punched. If that doesn’t sound like fun, the same technology could lead to games where people, say, juggle a virtual soccer ball.
  • When the game detects an impact, it sends a message to the Impacto device, which can simulate an impact with 50ms lag.
  • The device is still very much in the lab state, and it’s a bit unwieldy, but the technology is very promising and adding a haptic component to virtual reality could make it even more immersive.
