Touchable Virtual 3D Objects

This is really far out: a team of researchers at University of Bristol’s Department of Computer Science has demonstrated a way to use ultrasound to create floating shapes that feel real to the touch!

They speculate that “The new technology could enable surgeons to explore a CT scan by enabling them to feel a disease, such as a tumour, using haptic feedback.”

  1. I’m a sonographer and one of the few that has fully embraced 3D/4D volume ultrasound technologies. I’m excited to see the evolution of ultrasound concepts in the medical community. Thank you for sharing!
