Tactile Virtual Reality

Innovative technologies offer more immersive experiences like AR and VR. Virtual Reality immerses the user in a simulated environment, Augmented Reality is an overlay of technology in the real world. CISCO forecasts that globally, AR-VR traffic will increase 12-fold by 2022 in all fields of entertainment.

Touch gives us a deeper understanding of things which cannot be fully experienced by sight or hearing. That is where Tactile Virtual Reality comes into play. It combines the use of several types of technologies including sensors, advanced optics, etc. bundled into a single device that provides the capability to overlay augmented digital content into your real-time space. With the advancement of Tactile/Haptic technology, the touch barrier can now be scaled.
