HapticVive: HTC Vive and Baxter Robot for VR Force Feedback

HapticVive

Playing games with HTC Vive and Oculus Rift can be lots of fun. You are going to get an even better experience when you can feel virtual objects. As this video shows, it is possible to sue a Baxter robot to bring force feedback to VR.

When users press virtual objects, the robot pushes back to simulate the mass. The bad news is the robot is not cheap at all.
