    Virtual reality can make you feel like you're in space, but the tactile response can be pretty lacking. Techies from a Disney Research lab invented a system like this could make VR feel more realistic. A system enables users to accurately catch a real ball while immersed in a virtual reality environment.

    The predictive assistance visualizations not only effectively increase users' senses, but also alter their strategy in catching. Disney lab researchers examined three visualizations: rendering a matching virtual ball, the predicted trajectory of the ball and a target catching point lying on the predicted trajectory.
