Reach Out and Touch

A Wired article reports that researchers at the University at Buffalo have reported their development of a system that could allow the sense of touch to be transmitted across the ‘net. The article mentions several possible practical applications of the technology. I just couldn’t help but be reminded of Dennis Miller’s quote from several years ago: “If some unemployed punk in New Jersey, can get a cassette to make love to Elle McPherson for $19.95, this virtual reality stuff is going to make crack look like Sanka.” (Only $19.95? I’ll take two!!)
