TOMSK, Apr 9 – RIA Tomsk. Radiophysics of Tomsk State University (TSU) plan to develop a device to stimulate phantom touches, blows and sensations in online games by 2020; software and hardware complex affect skin with electrical impulses and create a feeling of interaction between player and various objects, the press service of the university reports on Monday.

It is specified that the hardware and software complex can be used on simulators with polimodal (polysensory) systems of information display, in 5D-cinemas, as well as in online games. The project is supported by the "Umnik" program of the Fund for Assistance to Small Innovative Enterprises, 500 thousand rubles have been allocated for its implementation.

"The work will be based on the technology of electro-tactile stimulation. With the help of the device we will act on a certain area of the skin with electrical signals ... At the same time, patterns of nervous activity are generated, which entering the brain, form phantom illusory sensations", – the press service quotes the developer of the project Andrei Kostorny.

According to him, the complex will consist of a control unit, generating unit and matrix of coaxial electrodes. The device will be adjusted for each carrier individually. The closest analogues - are the GAMETRIX vibros, the 3rd Spacer vest, the Tesla Suit virtual reality suit.

"The device will work without connecting to the network, its weight will be less than 1.8 kilograms. While electrostimulation will make the sensations more vivid and clear", – is emphasized in the message.
