The technology for digitally capturing and recreating objects is growing. Devices are becoming smaller and faster, more easily available to the public. The smallest 3D scanner is hand held, and various companies are trying to recreate tactile experiences on touch screens. People are yearning to add touch to the virtual world, hoping that it would further resemble the physical world. This project envisions that eventually a wearable/portable device would be developed, one that not only has scanning capabilities, but could also recreate texture and materiality of an object through haptic technologies.
Is this a good/useful/informative piece of content to include in the project? Have your say!
