Ultrasound haptics is a contactless haptic technology that enables novel mid-air interactions with rich multisensory feedback. This paper surveys recent advances in ultrasound haptic technology. We discuss the fundamentals of this haptic technology, how a variety of perceptible sensations are rendered, and how it is currently being used to enable novel interaction techniques. We summarize its strengths, weaknesses, and potential applications across various domains. We conclude with our perspective on key directions for this promising haptic technology.
