Paper Abstract

Computer controlled tactile gloves (CCTG) can recreate the sensation of touching objects that are not really there. This technology is already used in Virtual Reality (VR) with many successful applications. Holography is another science that is still finding many new applications. The combination of holograms and CCTG allows new possibilities to become feasible. Some possible uses of the haptic hologram are: The calibration of tactile gloves, psychological experiments (vision and dexterity, etc.), educational displays (museums), new artistic media, etc. This report looks at the possible use of CCTG with holograms.
