πŸ‡¬πŸ‡§ Why we should forget about haptic feedback in Virtual Reality

Do you remember the first time you used virtual reality? It was probably an amazing experience. You put on the headset and suddenly you were in a different world. Maybe you thought that there was something missing from that experience? Maybe that something was haptic feedback. In this episode of the virtual reality podcast, we are going to discuss why haptic feedback is not necessary in virtual reality and how it can actually detract from the overall experience.

In this episode I'm talking with Prof Bob Stone, Emeritus Professor, University of Birmingham, UK. Who has been involved in the development of Virtual Reality since the beginning.

We talk about haptic feedback gadgets and his experience with the development over the years. It was very interesting to from someone with the level of experience that Bob has.

If you are someone building anything for VR this episode is will provide you great insight. Pretty much anyone who's creating technology supposed to be used by humans needs to hear what Prof Bob Stone has to say.
