The AR / VR development community has embraced Interhaptics. Its open beta program has delivered powerful haptic tools to help create the next generation of immersive content.

Immersive applications and mobile developers are facing the challenge to develop for haptics. Moreover, they are requested to create immersive interactions across many devices and user interfaces. The results are often poor, with verticalized implementations with high development costs and little value for the final user. Fortunately, a smart solution to this problem is available for developers: the haptic technologies of Interhaptics.
Interhaptics addresses this problem with a powerful graphical development tool for haptics designer. The tool is compatible with every consumer device, and it includes a haptic interaction creator cross-compatible between different hand tracking methods.
Recently, the haptic company celebrated the success of its open beta program within the developer community, where it has received a fantastic response. Indeed, Interhaptics has been in open beta since mid-February 2020, with over 200 downloads and over 300 registered developers, including a number of very high-profile companies. The enthusiasm surrounding the haptics developer tools is high and rising.
The full launch of its haptics development suite is planned for September 2020. The first XR markets which will benefit from the haptic technologies of Interhaptics are the gaming and training industries.
“3 B humans have a haptics device in their pocket, and no one is really leveraging it,” commented Eric Vezzoli, CEO and Founder of the company. “Interhaptics is going to change that. We empower digital creators to engage on a deeper level with their customers through the sense of touch. Humans use hands since they were born. We empower creators in including believable and stable hand interactions within their digital applications.”
Zlatko Vidrih, Interhaptics Co-Founder, added quite passionately, “At Interhaptics we believe that the XR content developers should focus on implementation of the use cases, and not on interaction mechanics. Our vision is to provide the interaction and haptics design tools to ease and speed up the development and deployment processes.”
Founded in 2017, Interhaptics conducted a successful fundraiser for a million dollars, with the mission to deliver consistent, realistic, and immersive haptic solutions for XR and mobile developers. It aims to provide them with the essential haptics tools to increase the value of their final product with guaranteed quality, faster development, and cross-platform deployment.
