Where can I use Hapto?
Hapto's unique haptic feedback feature provides physical feedback so that you can "feel" a virtual object being touched inside a game or application. Hapto works both as a completely functional controller in any VR app or program, but also acts as an innovative device that enables you to physically feel the things that you interact with in virtual reality.
You can play first-person shooter or fighting games, as well as interact with 3D applications using your hands to move, open, rotate, drag or drop 3D objects with high precision.
How big is Hapto?
Hapto is 2.7 in (7 cm) wide, 3.5 in (9 cm) long and 3.5 in (9 cm) thick. Hapto has an ergonomic shape that is suitable for hands of all sizes. A convenient strap allows one to adjust the size of their Hapto.
How do I charge Hapto?
Hapto is charged via a USB connection. You can also charge Hapto while you play, although that will somewhat restrict movements. A fully charged Hapto provides 2 hours of active gaming experience.
What does Hapto offer developers?
We will provide the device itself and several development tools to help you get started with Hapto. Apart from the SDK, we will have separate channels of communication open only to active developers. We encourage creativity and welcome feedback and input. Only with your help will we be able to bring Hapto to a broad audience. The unique haptic feedback in Hapto enables amazing VR experiences like no other controller.
