Researchers from Toyohashi University of Technology, The University of Tokyo and Tokyo Metropolitan University have developed a virtual-walking system that records a person's walking and re-plays it with vision and foot vibrations.

The system can present experiences of walking to persons who are at a distance or have a disability of walking in the future.
