Its application can be done on any part of the skin. Starting from the back, hands, palms, hips and even to the soles of the feet.

"This technology has the ability to reinforce the perception of flying or falling, shrunken or stretched, or the presence of insects crawling on skin. The possibilities are immense," said Ali Israr, researchers DRP.
