 In this talk I will present the work of the Bristol Interaction and Graphics group is creating haptic sensations through the use of focused ultrasound. Using a phased array of ultrasound transducers we are able to create acoustic forces that can felt by a human. We demonstrate our approach both in air and through skin. I will elaborate on our approach and provide some examples of what we can do with it.


Sriram Subramanian is a Professor of Human-computer Interaction at the University of Bristol with a research interests in exploring new forms of interactive systems. He is specifically interested in rich and expressive input combining multi-touch, haptics and touchless gestures. Before joining the University of Bristol, he worked as a senior scientist at Philips Research Netherlands and as an Assistant Professor at the Department of Computer Science of the University of Saskatchewan, Canada.
