Today there are already devices that allow people to send and receive tactile sensations, but they are often quite cumbersome. The new development of scientists from the South Korean Research Institute of Electronics and Telecommunications (ETRI) is significantly smaller and can be placed on the arm.

New piezoelectric technology will be able to transmit tactile sensations at a distance.  It is also very compact and lightweight.

The current prototype is a compact board with a thin and long piezoelectric element less than 1 mm thick. Such an element generates a small current if the user swipes a finger across a textured surface. The signal is then transmitted over a radio channel to another user.

On the other hand, if you apply electricity to the piezoelectric element, it will vibrate. This allows you to transmit such sensations literally in real time. The delay is only 1.55 ms at a distance of up to 15 meters.

The system was able to transmit tactile sensations from materials such as cotton, polyester, spandex, raised lettering, and so on with an accuracy of 97%. In the future, it is possible that the technology will also allow the sensations of hot and cold surfaces to be transmitted. it is also planned to improve the transmission accuracy.

As a result, this will allow the creation of technologies for a very deep virtual immersion, however, no specific dates have yet been announced.

Get your tinfoil hats out how much more Windows 11

Many have heard claims that Windows 11 is heavily “spying” on users. As a recent YouTube video on The PC Security Channel shows, Windows 11 does send massive amounts of data to its own and third-party servers.

Worst of all, the OS does this before the user even installs or opens their first app. The author of the channel used the Wireshark application to analyze network activity on two “clean” versions of Windows.

The first was the brand new Windows 11, and the second was the good old Windows XP. A quick analysis revealed that Windows 11 connects to many third-party servers and services, most of which do nothing but track for ads. And it’s worth noting that all of these actions take place on every Windows 11 computer out of the box, without prompting the user and before he tries to use the Internet.
