Touchable holograms shown with ultrasound tech

Touch holograms shown off

University of Tokyo researchers are demonstrating what they call an Airborne Ultrasound Tactile Display (PDF) at the currently ongoing SIGGRAPH event in New Orleans.

Because holograms are nothing but light, the team has developed a way to produce tactile feedback.
