Space walk

Kevin Fong talk to astronaut Dan Tani about Tim Peake's space walk.

Haptic technology recreates the sensation of touch through forces and vibrations. In this video, Danielle George and a young audience member experiment with haptic technology. This piece of kit recreates the feeling of touch by using tiny speakers to create precise ultrasonic vibrations and mould the shape of an object.

Danielle George gave the 2014 CHRISTMAS LECTURES "Sparks will fly: how to hack your home" This clip is from her second lecture "Making contact".
