Robot arms for virtual reality

Virtual reality is no longer a joke to you. This is a separate industry with huge prospects. Therefore, it is not surprising that more and more devices are being developed for various realities.

Japanese scientists have developed a pair of robotic armsthat appear to the user in virtual reality. At the same time, the participants in the experiment stated that they felt these very “hands” as part of their own body.

During the experiments, users were placed withusing VR headsets into a new environment where they were trained to use extra arms with controllers attached to their legs. Accordingly, virtual hands replaced real legs for the participants. Sounds creepy.

According to the authors of the project, they wanted to allow a person to feel a new, different part of the body, using only a virtual image.

So who knows, maybe in the new virtual world we will control not only our four limbs, but also a couple more. Or ten. Infinity, as they say, is not the limit.
