Google has always been good about sharing their latest findings and ways to improve technology. Today, through their Google VR team, we have learned that the company has developed an innovating and immersive haptic feedback system for VR called Haptic Helper.
“We’re taking VR to the next level with Haptic Helpers. Using a modest set of everyday tools, these VR virtuosos can simulate more than 10,000 unique experiences, all from the comfort of your own home. Smell the roses. Listen to the ocean. Feel a fluffy dog!
We’ve recently begun in-home user tests and are now seeking additional trusted testers. Interested? Sign up now.”
Haptic Helper is essentially a “Man-meets machine” scenario with bio-mechanical engineering. While being in an immersed state you’ll be feeling the physical elements of the virtual world. From the desert winds breezing through your hair to the aromas scenting from every corner, Haptic Helpers are here to provide the most immersed experience that a person can feel.
If you are interested in becoming a Haptic Helper at Google, there are certain requirements you must meet.
- Be good at blow drying in every angle. This is critical for every Haptic Helper as you must maintain a truly immersive feedback system.
- You must be able to hold at least 10 pounds of weight. There will be time where you might feel overwhelmed due to holding on to things for too long. But every Haptic Helper must overcome and provide the immersive experience.
- Be sharp between the eyes. You never know when the user might simply turn and head in a random direction.
