Sony tactile feedback gloves patent exposure

ByLinky Johnson 2019-06-18 391

A new Sony patent has come to light describing a VR glove with vibration feedback that can be used with PSVR.

According to Sony's application to the US Patent and Trademark Office, they described a VR glove with vibration feedback, which could even be transplanted to other clothing such as hats, pants, tops, etc., and would have a sense of temperature (cold, hot). This feature allows players to "touch" objects in the VR world, such as the feeling of being shot in call of Duty.

According to Sony's patent documents, the VR feedback system will contain cold, warm systems, motors, compressed gases and liquids. These different elements can naturally give users who watch concerts on PSVR a deeper feeling, but the patent does not mention compatibility with active PSVR.

In addition, the system can also provide users with a sense of touch in the VR world, such as the ability to feel the texture and shape of objects, the intensity of feedback as they press and move, and the sense of relative distance from other objects. In this way, when the player in the VR world is dragged, moved, collided, thrown, there will be a corresponding feeling. In fact, this is not the first time Sony has demonstrated the concept of vibration feedback kits, and they launched the experience with "Rez Infinite" many years ago. But this time the concept is only in the patent documentation stage, and it is unclear whether Sony will make the design come true in the end.
