7:00PM - 8:30PM - "I Can Feel it Coming in the Air Tonight - Haptic Experiences via Ultrasound!"
HUI Central welcomes Robin Alter, VP of Strategic Partnerships at Ultrahaptics. The company, founded in the UK, now also in Palo Alto CA utilizes ultrasound vibrations to bring midair touch to digital worlds - with NO WIRES OR GLOVES!
Touch is essential for VR & AR experiences to feel real & respond intuitively to users interactions. Haptics allow users to feel immersed in activities, feel in control of actions & feel connected to the virtual environment & social interactions they enable.
Ultrahaptics uses ultrasound to create tactile sensations IN MIDAIR with no gloves or attachments. The feeling is projected onto bare skin via sound waves, delivering haptic sensations, such as touching buttons, switches, shapes & textures, to bring the experience of touch to AR & VR, empowering users to touch the digital world.
Attendees will hear about the technology & have the opportunity to experience it for themselves!
