Session Name:

Bringing Touch to VR and AR with Ultrasound (Presented by Ultrahaptics Ltd)


Touch is essential for VR and AR experiences to feel real and respond intuitively to users' interactions. Haptics allow us to feel immersed in our activities, feel in control of our actions and feel connected to the virtual environment and social interactions they enable.

Ultrahaptics uses ultrasound to create tactile sensations in midair. No gloves or attachments, the feeling is projected onto bare skin. We deliver haptic sensations, such as the touching buttons, switches, shapes and textures, via sound waves, to bring the sensation of touch to AR and VR.
