TOUCH Development KitGet started with mid-air haptics
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.
This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement no. 685368
Plug and playQuick and easy to set up and create tactile, mid-air sensations within a few minutes of unboxing.
Create unique sensationsCustomise your own sensations with the easy-to-use Sensation Editor.
Evaluate and experimentUse the included, pre-calibrated Leap Motion® camera module or work with any gesture recognition software that gives 3D coordinates.

* Time Point Streaming allows for rapid update signals to be sent to the transducer array for the creation of ultrasonic haptic sensations. It unlocks the capability of using both amplitude modulation and spatio-temporal modulation techniques for the haptic rendering of 3D objects and surfaces.
