A large interaction library with haptic feedback for e-commerce

We implemented a large interaction library composed by interactive furniture items. Within the library, you will have the possibility to see several actions that the user can experience in a physical shop. For instance, transforming the extendable couch into a bed, arranging the chair, opening the closet and its drawers, opening and closing the drawers of the desk, and so on. Moreover, there is the possibility to add haptic feedback for e-commerce scenarios, improving the immersion and user experience of the customer. Thanks to these features, customers can try the ergonomics and use of the products with realistic behavior and movements.

With Interhaptics, all of this is implementable in a few clicks within your application, with the addition of haptic feedback for e-commerce.
