Wii Remotes help you feel holograms

Holograms have always disappointed me. This is mostly because they're nothing like what they are in science fiction. Where's the hologram that can go horribly wrong and trap me in gangster era America with the safety protocols somehow broken? I demand holograms that can kill me, and until they exist nothing is going to satisfy my hologram needs. I clearly have a long wait, but we are one step closer as some scientists in Japan have created tactile holograms and part of the process involves using Wii Remotes. Is there anything the Wii Remote can't be used for?

Really the use of the Wii Remote just gives us a good excuse to show off this interesting piece of tech as otherwise it wouldn't really be gaming related. The holographic device uses the Wii Remotes to track the person's hand and the the feeling of things like rain drops or a ball is created by an "Airborne Ultrasound Tactile Display." It seems pretty high-tech so I'll just let the video below show it off to you instead of pretending that I know what I'm talking about.
