Got a big meeting for NSERC with a local motion picture company (random) the proposal is to design a haptics device that will be able to provide a full upper body level of force feedback.

So when you bump into a wall you'll feel it on your shoulder and when you bump into a person you'll feel it, when you walk past someone too close you'll feel them brush by. Another application is video games if you get shot you'll feel from where or if your in a racing simulator (like the big blue one at McMaster) we can simulate you bumping up against the seats.

There's a lot of possibilities with this device part of the meeting will be focusing on what the vision is for this project. Should be fun I look forward to consulting with 5 ppl that have come in from the office to meet on McMaster.
