‘AIREAL’ by Disney Research Brings 4D Haptic Experience to Gaming

AIREAL by Disney ResearchDisney Research today unveiled AIREAL, a low-cost, highly scalable solution that aims to fill an increasing void in gaming by bring tactile feedback to motion-responsive controllers, such as the Microsoft Kinect.

While traditional gaming controllers often use vibration to provide haptic feedback to gamers, those using controllers that respond to physical movement haven’t been afforded that luxury until now.

The AIREAL uses a (mostly) 3D printed vortex generator that uses speakers whose diaphragms are activated, pushing air out of the device. By alternating patterns and lengths, the tactile feedback can vary depending on the player’s situation and expectations. Furthermore, the AIREAL system is scalable, allowing an array of them to be used in situations to provide feedback in true three dimensional space.

‘Disney Infinity’ ‘Frozen’ Toys, Variants and Additional Characters Leaked by Retailer

As per a thread located on DisneyInfinityFans.com, a French etailer had temporarily listed several ‘Disney Infinity’ items that had long been suspected, but had not been formally announced.

Among the items listed were toys (figures) featuring the likenesses of Elsa and Anna of Disney’s Frozen, Mickey Mouse (which we believe will be a Sorcerer’s Apprentice inspired item) and Jack Skellington. Also identified are toy packs branded for Frozen and Wreck-It Ralph (both consisting of perhaps just two characters based on the pricing). Oddly enough, a separate toy listing for Woody existed, casting doubts on the figures expected to be included in the Toy Story Space play set. An oddly named ‘girls’ pack of figures was also listed.
