This is EXOS: A haptic device in the shape of an exoskeleton. This device, when worn by a person can make them feel the sensation of touching a virtual object with their hands.
By giving the reaction force to the user’s fingers by the built-in motor, EXOS can reproduce the feeling that actually touched the object. This further expands the possibilities of what VR can do.
Additionally the device can be used to provide you with a more immersive VR gaming experience.
