Novint Technologies, a development partner of Manhattan Scientifics, has created a new technology called e-Touch that allows parents to touch a virtual image of their unborn child.
Tom Anderson, CEO of Novint Technologies, unveiled the 3-D ultrasound touch system at New Mexico Sonographics, a medical facility located in Albuquerque, NM.
Here’s how it works: a 3D ultrasound scan is first taken of the baby. The images are then loaded into the e-Touch software which creates a three dimensional image of the baby from any direction, including straight on, or from his or her profile.
A special computer mouse registers contact with the image and creates the sensation of touch.
