Scientists add mouth haptics to VR, complete with spiders



Ever wanted the feelings of spiders in and around your mouth on demand, whenever you want? Well you’re in luck, you wonderful weirdo, because VR is coming to the rescue. 

New haptics are always being worked into VR, and according to IFLScience, a group of scientists from Carnegie Mellon University’s Future Interfaces Group are truly going above and beyond. The team has fitted an Oculus Quest 2 with ultrasonic transducers, which can generate ultrasonic energy. For some reason, they’ve pointed this straight at the mouth to add unique sensations to the VR experience.
