Tecnologia tattile e indossabile: così la robotica dà una mano.

The main idea is to bring out from the lab some of the robotic experiments developped during the research activity of our accademic department.
In particular, we would like to show some interactive demos related to the European project WEARHAP (www.wearhap.eu) about wearable haptic interfaces (devices able to provide tactile stimuli) and the human interaction with higly immersive virtual environments.
Moreover, we will show the Robotic Sixth Finger, a novel solution to compensate hand grasping abilities for chronic stroke patients during everyday life activities.
