Adding touch to technology to change the way we interact with our digital worlds






A portable, low-cost, open-source haptic device, the Haplet aims to democratize force feedback haptics and make touch accessible for all


The Technology


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.
