Haptic interpolation for wearables designers

By January 5, 2021 January 12th, 2021 No Comments

Learn how to develop haptic feedback wearables that are more efficient, lighter and cheaper to manufacture.

Elitac Wearables has published a new whitepaper on haptic interpolation: This concept allows wearables designers to generate haptic sensations anywhere on a patch of skin that is covered by a set of vibration motors – not only underneath or at the location of the vibration motor.

In the whitepaper, Senior Researcher Wouter Vos explains how Elitac Wearables utilises haptic interpolation to:

  • Develop wearables with more precise haptic feedback: improving effectiveness while minimising intrusiveness for the user.
  • Target any location on the body with fewer tactors (vibration motors), making wearables cheaper to manufacture, lighter and more comfortable to wear.
