    Touch Hologram in Mid-Air



    This demonstration presents a surprising human-computer experience combining a pair of mixed reality smart glasses and a haptic device. This one involves existing technologies: the HoloLens from Microsoft and the touch development kit from Ultrahaptics. By mixing a holographic display and an array of ultrasonic transducers, Immersion gives tangible feedback to a hologram. This colocation of feedbacks drastically enhances the presence of the object. This also gives a spatial reference in order to interact with the virtual environment.
