EMIL at HelsinCHI Research Symposium

“But please don’t burn my hand!” – How immersive does it feel like to hold a warm cup of coffee or throw an icy snowball in VR? At HelsinCHI research symposium last week, Aalto University demonstrated the first wearable thermal prototype on the hand to experience hot and cold temperatures when interacting with virtual objects. No burning but a lot of excitement and useful feedback from testers to proceed with the development. Later this week, we will be participating in the upcoming CHI 2023 conference workshop on smell, taste, and temperature interfaces to share our progress with other researchers in the field.
