The sense of touch is an essential step in enhancing virtual reality immersion. Streamlining the development and integration of haptics and interactions is a necessary step to scale the use of Haptics in digital content, and including a haptic device that can raise the immersion of any XR project. Therefore, Senseglove and Interhaptics are collaborating to enhance XR content thanks to Haptics. Senseglove offers a haptic device inspired by the hand’s biology that provides the force, vibrotactile feedbacks, and motion tracking, where Interhaptics provides top tier development and deployment software for interactions, hand – tracking, and haptic feedback.
Eric Vezzoli, Interhaptics CEO & Founder “We are excited to work with Senseglove. The Senseglove exoskeleton is at the bleeding edge of Haptics technology for XR training and simulations applications. This collaboration will contribute to our vision of democratizing the touch sense across all digital platforms.”
VR haptics is not only about hardware. Engaging applications with realistic interactions require development efforts. That could be time-consuming. Especially, if you are not a proficient Unity developer! Interhaptics provides hand interactions and Haptics feedback development and deployment tools. In order to simplify this process for researchers and developers, Senseglove will be integrated with Interhaptics. The collaboration will deliver a drag and drop approach for designing haptics and interaction scenarios and may save up to 90% of the development time.
Gijs den Butter, SenseGlove CEO “Standardising haptic interactions can only be achieved when working together. Therefore, SenseGlove collaborates with Interhaptics, with their intuitive composer Interhaptics has the potential to transform the XR haptics world and help SenseGlove dream come true: make touch in VR affordable for every professional use-case”.
Senseglove builds and provides haptic gloves for training, XR simulations, and research. Since 2017, they merge the connection between the digital world and our reality by developing and providing accessible and intuitive XR devices that generate a large variety of tactile effects and increase immersion into your XR experiences. By adding touch, SenseGlove enables natural interactions in spatial computing, resulting in a new digital reality that is accessible for every professional.
