Impacto is a wearable device that simulates the sensation of physical impact in virtual reality. It does so by decomposing the stimuli into (1) the tactile sensation, which is rendered by tapping the user’s skin with a solenoid, and (2) the impulse, which is rendered by actuating the user’s body with electrical muscle stimulation.
