Simulation & Skills Training
The more authentic a simulated environment is, the better the results of training.¹
Haptic feedback takes virtual simulation training a step further, facilitating skill mastery by replicating the sensations of real life scenarios. This allows trainees to run through high-stakes situations with zero risk, which is particularly important for skills that require very precise movements and tactile feedback, such as medical procedures, or dangerous practices, and military operations.

Haptic controllers offer an intuitive way to supervise machinery with an added dimension of accuracy.
Haptic teleoperation in robotics combines the benefits of robotic manipulation with human mental abilities and handling strategies by enabling a human operator to feel interaction forces and intuitively control the forces exerted by a remotely-operated robot on its environment. This feedback is vital for delicate tasks involving the handling of fragile or dangerous objects or tasks requiring a high level of precision.
3D Art & Design
Haptic content design has the potential to revolutionize creative fields with new and improved user interactions.
The future of content creation and consumption will be focused on making virtual experiences as immersive and photo realistic as possible. The new UX paradigms realized by haptic content will enable users to naturally navigate spatial environments and feel what they digitally produce, transforming the way we interact with media as well as the structure of product development systems, among other things.
Academia & Research
Immerse in true-to-life simulated research environments at a fraction of the cost.
Haptic technology enables researchers to conduct high-level studies in realistic virtual recreations of any setting, for any type of research — whether academic, clinical, or commercial. This level of immersion supports the discovery of meaningful insights with the accuracy of physical studies, minus considerable research costs and unpredictable environmental factors.
