Hapling

REAL-TIME TACTILE FEEDBACK
& GESTURE RECOGNITION

Hapling is a synergistic combination of mechanics, electronics and powerful software in the form of light and intelligent jewellery.


The actuators connect to a physical and perceptual engine that goes much beyond classic haptic rendering and forms an integrated platform from which applications can be easily developed.

Advantages:
small and light
leaves your hands free
easy to keep clean

“We want haptic technologies to facilitate everyday comunication and interactions, which is why we do not limit Hapling to one application. Possibilities are endless!”  

– Brygida Dzidek, CEO

How is it
possible?

RECEPTOR MAPPING
& HUMAN TOUCH

Thanks to mechanoreceptors in our skin, which are sensitive to pressure, vibrations, and shear stresses


– we can feel, when we touch.


Receptor stimuli mapping and hand tracking algorithms applied in Hapling create new virtual physicality. We store them in a form of the Tactile Library.

APPLICATIONS:

electronics industry (computer equipment and accessories, electronics and household appliances)

industrial design,

e-commerce,

education, science and training sectors,

robotics and smart systems (Internet of Things, Industry 4.0)

Projects

OUR COLLABORATIONS
WITH PARTNERS

The aim is to enrich the virtual world we experience today.

GAMEINN

The goal of this project is to develop a new product for haptic interaction in video games.

The system will emulate the experience of physical touch combined with integrated gesture recognition that exploit new paradigms of interactions such as texture exploration, depth of 3D objects, grasping, catching, pinching, fiddling, and many more.

HURO

We propose a technology transfer experiment to enable health professionals to remote control a humanoid robot using a novel haptic interface.

This represents a tech transfer from the robotics and game market into healthcare where we will pilot how health professionals can utilize a humanoid robot to perform care tasks. More specifically we will demonstrate that novel game technology and robotics can be utilized to bridge the gap between the robotics and care industry.

We will develop a demonstrator that seeks to showcase that a humanoid robot with little training can be utilized to perform multiple tasks.

WE ARE OPEN FOR ACADEMIC COLLABORATION
