Haptics is the science of touch. When you are interacting with objects in your day-to-day life, you are applying forces to those objects, but also receiving a force back. This feedback system allows us to feel the pull of a taught bow or the weight of a caught ball.
We are introducing technology that recreates this sense of touch in virtual environments, such as a game on your tablet or a surgical simulation running on your computer. Our device, called the Haplet, is the world's first device to use force-feedback haptic technology on a co-located screen, which means you can use it on any kind of screen, such as your tablet, mobile phone, monitor or laptop screen.
Haply is a group of dedicated tech enthusiasts and entrepreneurs with expertise in haptics, robotics, and engineering. The team is currently located in Montreal. Interested in collaborating? Shoot us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org!
