The project "Touch VR e-Skin for Metaverse" received the Gold Medal at Inventions Geneva Evaluation Days (IGED) 2022. IGED is the world's most important annual event devoted exclusively to invention.

This wearable technology enriches the virtual reality/augmented reality (VR/AR) experience through the sense of touch beyond watching and hearing. Designed for everyday use, this wireless and flexible haptic VR e-skin allows wearers to receive haptic feedback in the metaverse and feel the touch of family or friends during video calls. Moreover, for another application, amputees wearing the eskin can regain their sense of touch.
