Magnetorheological Elastomer Gloves

  [vote for,

As an alternative to haptic actuators using crude elements such as vibration motors and pistons and things that go bump. An entire pair of gloves could be constructed from magnetorheological elastomers, with an actuation matrix embedded, such that tuned damping / absorption and magnetostriction could be coded to ‘mean’ similar signals to what current haptic are trying to do.

Also, good for sex toys, not just gloves. In fact, forget gloves, sex toys are probably the HCI interaction method of the future.

       Sensors, similar to guitar pickups could probably read the thickening and thinning of the magnetorheological (ferrofluid like) material to read positioning information. Nice.

       Just jump into the full body glove and slip into the ferrofluid spa.
