TOUCH Development KitBringing mid-air touch to human machine interface
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.

Summary & Configuration
Sensation Editor – Professional/Enterprise (Available Q2 2017)
A set of ready-to-use sensations are available from a library, or their properties adjusted to create specific feelings. Additional features can be accessed by subscribing to Professional or Enterprise versions.
24x8 rectangular transducer array
The TOUCH Development Kit can be reconfigured to address alternative form factor requirements. The rectangular transducer array can replace the standard 14x14 Board, and only requires a simple software update through an API command.
Cover material kit
Ultrahaptics can recommend a selection of cover materials with a range of acoustic, physical and visual characteristics. Customers can evaluate materials in conjunction with the transducer array.
