FOLDAWAY Haptics develops ultra-portable human-machine interfaces that fold-away when not in use and that provide rich force rendering. The manufacturing is cost competitive, scalable and does not require manual assembly.
Virtual and augmented reality (VR and AR) experiences are nowadays diffusing fast. VR enabling technology is becoming available to everyone at affordable cost but the immersive experience is limited by the lack of tactile interactions while touching VR, i.e. when trying to grasp virtual objects. This lack of touch is frustrating and greatly limits VR/AR potential. Commercial VR joysticks, are either portable but have only vibrational feedback or provide high quality force rendering but they are very bulky and costly. Foldaway-Haptics scales down force rendering mechanisms to the size of a human finger inventing portable and cost-effective solutions use not only in VR joysticks but to embed in any everyday life device such as laptops, drones controllers and smartphones
