Ultrasound radiation provides tacticle feedback

Albeit still limited in the "degree of tacticle feedback it can simulate," Japanese researchers at the University of Tokyo have been able to use ultrasound radiation to give holograms haptic feedback when "touched."

The technology is limited for now. It can only emit a “safe” level of ultrasound radiation, meaning that the degree of tactile feedback it can simulate is confined to things like lightly stroking an object. It can’t yet emulate a handshake or a bear-hug, as Motherboard noted.
