Vibration motors attached to each fingertip and the palm of the glove will start buzzing when the virtual hand collides with virtual objects. Each motor vibrates separately, so you can tell if you touched an object with just one finger. Depending on what you touch, different vibration patterns will activate. For example, when the player touches the waterfall, the motors will vibrate randomly with very small delays simulating the random impact of the water.
