Bau is the researcher behind Revel, a wearable device developed at Disney Research. It injects a signal into the body to modify our tactile perception of the environment by providing artificial tactile sensations almost anywhere. This includes displays, walls, objects and human skin. The human body and hardware are interdependent; the technology augments the body's capabilities, while using it as a fundamental functional component.
