Acoustic radiation pressure
Acoustic radiation pressure is a type of haptic feedback mechanism. It is a creation of inaudible sound, usually ultrasound in nature. A speaker system sets up a specific acoustic wave that creates a difference in pressure density at a given location above it. Modulating the sound carefully around the speaker allows shapes to be made in the air, that exert differing amounts of pressure on anything passed through there ? such as body parts. This replicates the feeling of brushing wind, or a ghostly almost-solid object.

Haptics is the study of the sense of touch. Touch has many parts, but the most basic, the most fundamental of all, is that of pressure.
Pressure build-up inside the cranium, is one of the most dangerous physical conditions to threaten the brain. In some individuals, fluid build-up is so intense that it risks crushing the brain. Until now, the only way to detect it, has been to drill a hole into the skull, and insert a sensor cabled to a diagnostic machine - for weeks at a time.
The Hyper IMS system is a prosthetic implant designed to track and monitor a person's blood pressure in real time. Designed to reduce the need for continual doctor visits, unnecessary drugs and stress, the prosthetic organ is implanted directly into the femoral artery in the groin. There, it monitors blood pressure thirty times a minute.

Researchers have prototyped an electrotactile second skin to be worn over the first, which adds additional pressure sensation to the user's own sensory capabilities – it makes the natural skin much more sensitive to touch.
All manner of approaches are being fielded these days to try and create a workable haptic interface, that allows the true feeling of touch to an object that is only virtually there. One of the more esoteric, is the use of sound to shape the pressure fields in the air. Specifically, the use of ultrasound.
The Wii Balance Board is literally as it sounds. It is a small, white board you stand upon, with internal pressure pads in formation, to detect any slight changes in weight as your posture changes on top of it.
