Novasentis CEO introduces their flexible, thin, light, multi output haptic technology, here demonstrating how it may be used to enhanse sensing for AR/VR applications where you already have video and audio, and the haptic feedback that can be customized for each finger and programmed so that you can get a variety of “sensations”, smart variable haptic frequencies can emulate the feeling of touching different materials in the AR/VR world. Francois did not name his customers but they are working with companies that are making AR/VR devices, gaming controllers and wearable devices. I have previously video blogged about the flexible wearable devices and they are making further progress with that application also where the haptic actuators are embedded into the smart watch strap. I can think of many more applications for this technology including smart clothing. Watch my channel to hear latest updates about Novasentis that is the only company that has this type of technology.
