A system for tactile sense through human sensory nerve fiber

Summary

Signals is inputted directly to human's sensory nerves to transmit the sense of touch. This method may not only applied to virtual reality technology, but also applied to prosthesis technology.

(This is joint research with Mabuchi Laboratory and Shimojo Laboratory .)
