Technology Spotlight: Haptic Learning Gloves

Scientists at Georgia Tech University are working to apply breakthroughs in passive haptic learning to the acquisition of new skills — like typing and playing the piano — with the help of special tactile interface gloves, virtually wearable computers.

This promising learning approach, sometimes referred to as “muscle memory,” is also being applied to rehabilitation for those with physical and mental impairments. Hepatic learning gloves and other wearable tactile interfaces are the feature of this week’s Technology Spotlight.
