Hapto is an ergonomic hand-held VR gaming controller that enables you to feel the shape, density, and distance of objects within a virtual space.
Hapto is expanding the VR experience by augmenting it with the sense of touch. Unlike all other controllers, Hapto not only vibrates, but also provides the sensation of objects actually interacting with your hand. With 20 pushers that become active in turns, exerting varying degrees of pressure and movement on the hand— Hapto simulates the feeling of touching a real object in VR.
Hapto is also equipped with finger-tracking which captures any of your finger movements and reflects them in VR, so you can grab, pull, push, and deftly maneuver in a VR space.
Essentially Hapto has two functions in VR. On the one hand (no pun intended), Hapto provides physical feedback to the user, so that the experience of interacting with virtual objects feels real. On the other hand, it functions as a regular controller, so the user can navigate menus, games, and more in VR.
Hapto is compatible with any gear for PC (including Oculus Rift and HTC Vive), as well as any Android mobile devices such as Samsung Gear VR, Google Cardboard, Google Daydream View, and Merge VR Goggles.
