FULU Haptic Fingernail for Augmented Reality
by Studio Tada

Ryo Tada

FULU is a fingernail-mounted haptic interface that generates the organic subtleties of touch for augmented reality.

FULU brings the sense of touch to everyday digital communication. Stroke the fur of your dog, touch the hand of a loved one, feel the waves on the beach, wherever you are in the world. Easily connected to smartphones with Bluetooth, FULU brings touch to video calls and gaming apps.

During the COVID-19 outbreak, many of us are isolated from our loved ones. With FULU, we can physically connect with our family at a time of social distancing, making an emotional bond that only a touch can convey.


This project has been longlisted in the wearable design project category of Dezeen Awards 2020.
