Currently, VR headsets have the ability to transport gamers to another
world thanks to the stimulation of the senses of sight and hearing, but
one is still missing in order to enjoy a complete immersive experience:
the sense of touch.
The haptic jacket offered by Actronika revolutionizes VR as it allows
users to simultaneously touch, see and hear all events occurring on
screen: live and direct, true-to-life sensations. It enables a total
immersive experience – the user can feel every interaction, but also
their environment (fire, wind, hits, heartbeat, etc.…).
To develop its device, the Parisian start-up specialized in haptics
relies on its very own patented technology and high-definition
actuators. The power and precision of the effects is based on the
multitude of actuators integrated within the device which can all be
individually controlled in order to create sensations that flow and
pulse throughout the entire vest, based on the virtual interaction.
Notice to all the VR and augmented reality lovers, the commercialization
of this haptic jacket is scheduled for 2020!
In the meantime, you can already try it out on Actronika’s stand at CES: Sands
– Hall G – booth 50441!
Actronika is a Parisian startup founded in 2014 by Vincent Hayward,
Gilles Meyer and Rafal Pijewski. It offers haptic solutions capable of
producing high definition textures and effects that can be integrated in
any Human Machine Interface.
As a result, it becomes possible, for example, to feel the texture of
a fabric on your smartphone screen or create 3D buttons without bulky
mechanical integration. This technology can be integrated in any device:
smartphones, car screens, displays, etc.
In this digital era, Actronika’s mission is to reintroduce the sense
of touch and revolutionize human-machine interactions to give users
natural, multi-sensory experiences.
