BeBop makes fabric sensors that are piezo-resistive, they showed off their latest product the Forte Wireless Glove that can sense finger movements and incorporates haptic feedback. Ideally used in VR applications, this glove can work for 15 hours on a single charge, it is a one size fits all model, very fast response up to 150 frames/second for gaming applications, unique haptic actuators embedded at each finger tip. BeBop also showed pressure sensing foot pads and hand tracking system both using their fabric sensor technology. The company has been shipping its sensors into musical instruments sold by its sister company KMI, one such example was the BopPad a musical drum pad that is in the market already. BeBop is silicon valley based startup, expecting to go into mass production this year.
Tacterion shows their innovative and unique capacitive+resistive technology is a highly flexible and stretchable sensor called sensorskin which consists of silicone polymer material and is completely stretchable. Sensors can be deployed on the surface of 3D-curved and even deformable objects for detecting and characterizing interaction and pressure on any surface. The technology is optimized for environments that require the products to be sensitive and extremely robust at the same time. The target markets are Robotics, MedTech, Automotive, Industrial applications and HMI (e.g. Consumer Electronics). Filmed at the IDTechEx Show!
