Magic touch?

Researchers at the University of Tokyo are working on an interface that uses Wiimotes and ultrasound to create interactive holograms that provide the illusion of touchability. This has obvious gaming implications for blind individuals, who could use it to manipulate objects and controls. But what if it could be extended further–say, to create tactile maps on the fly, or to provide an interface for simulating scientific experimentation?
