Directed Ultrasound Device Creates Virtual Objects You Can "Touch" (YouTube Via Gizmodo)

In case you missed it on Gizmodo last week, Shinodalabs recently demonstrated an ultrasound device that essentially allows you to touch something that exists in a virtual world. It appears from the video below that once the system (involving an ultrasonic generating pad and a camera) is set up, the user can interact with objects in virtual space without any additional gear (such as specialized gloves, etc.). For more on the device see also Ultrasound To Give Feel To Games from the BBC.
