TOUCH Development Kit now available Buy Now

Entry-level development kit

TOUCH is an entry-level development kit that allows you to evaluate and experiment with mid-air haptics for straightforward HMI/UI applications such as notifications, confirmations and alerts.

TOUCH is particularly suitable for customers looking to explore appliances, consumer products and industrial applications.

Ultrahaptics’ patented algorithms control ultrasound waves to create haptic sensations in mid-air – shapes and objects that cannot be seen, but can be felt. No controllers or wearables are needed: the “virtual touch” technology uses ultrasonic transducers to project sensations directly onto the user’s hands.

Experiment with a library of sensation templates included in the Sensation Editor – configure them to your requirements or develop your own.

Including a 14x14 transducer array board, Leap Motion® camera module and software suite, the TOUCH Development Kit has everything you need to rapidly evaluate and experiment with mid-air haptics for HMI/UI control interfaces and interactions.

Where to buy

The TOUCH Development Kit is available to buy from the following distributors:

This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement no. 685368
