A Remarkable Connection

Ultrahaptics’ core technology manipulates modulated ultrasound, from an array of ultrasonic transducers, to give you complete control of virtual buttons, sliders and dials. Proprietary algorithms control the projection and nature of the desired sensations, when and where you need them.

The TOUCH Development Kit allows you to create tactile sensations in free space so that your products and devices communicate with the user through haptic feedback.

Experiment with a range of sensations included in the Sensation Editor library, configure them to your requirements or develop your own using the software suite provided.
