Haptics technology is already embedded in the majority of smartphone hardware. However, it has not been leveraged to its full potential. Haptic feedback plays a very important role in the UX for mobile.
How does multisensory feedback in hand interactions affect the feeling of embodiment in virtual and augmented reality? This is a question that Simon is currently investigating. He is a master’s student in Interaction Design, in Germany. He is passionate about immersive technologies, UI and UX design, and spatial and physical computing, especially in the field of the Smart Home. “I see a strong potential in multisensory interactions”.
Haptics includes the perceptions of touch and all the technologies to recreate digital touch sensations. There are a lot and not all of them are useful for XR use cases. Haptics can enhance your XR experience if they are used properly.
