Virtalis Haptic Master ImageHaptic technology is now maturing and coming out of research laboratories and into real products and applications.

Virtalis has joined forces with Freeform Studios to form a new venture – Touch And Discover Systems, which has developed the ground-breaking Probos system, that allows museum visitors to virtually “touch” and examine precious artefacts.  We also market internationally the Haptic Cow and Haptic Horse veterinary training systems in collaboration with Professor Sarah Baillie at Bristol University School of Veterinary Sciences.

We are convinced haptics are moving into the mainstream. The world’s leading haptics specialists have turned to Virtalis to represent them, so we can give impartial advice on the best haptics solution for a specific task.

As with VR, Haptic technology really has to be experienced to be believed. Your brain is telling you there is nothing there, but your fingers are telling you that they are exploring and feeling the virtual image your eyes are seeing. It’ll surely be not too many years before all virtual models are haptically enabled as a matter of course.

Force feedback haptic devices offer

  • Enhanced user interface to advanced visualisation and Virtual Reality (VR) simulations.
  • Useful feature in the sphere of advanced robotics.
  • Numerous medical applications.
  • Provide the missing dimension to virtual CAD assembly processes.
  • Used in all kinds of R&D.
