Georgia Tech scientists prep vibrating glove prototype that hopes to improve touch sensitivity


Now this is one Power Glove that will impress both Fred Savage and us. Scientists at Georgia Tech have created a prototype of an extremely unique vibrating glove. This bad boy vibrates in such a way that it actually increases your touch sensitivity. Now shaking hands can feel sooooo good.

Just how does this work? It adds a modicum of vibration to everything done while wearing the glove. This ends up increasing touch sensitivity as all touch sensitivity is, really, is a bunch of vibrations of varying degrees.

It’s just a concept/prototype for now but the scientists behind the glove do envision some real world uses, including helping medical patients with dulled feeling in their hands. We’ll keep you updated as more information becomes available. Until then, you are stuck with your boring old regular hands for touching. Sorry.
