This is a company that deserves to be on everyone's radar.

As Augmented Reality gets going, I'm quite sure that this is going to be everywhere. Gesture control is cool, but if you can make it feel like you're manipulating someTHING, that's way better -- the gestures will be more precise.

Microvision will be involved  -- putting stuff in thin are requires knowing where things in thin air are. (After all, they need a display -- AND the 3D scanning -- and probably touch-projection too.)


In your car. In your kitchen. Ultrahaptics lets you feel objects that don't really exist.

Minority Report set our expectations high.

After watching it, we all figured that soon, just like Tom Cruise, we’d be waving our hands in mid-air to get shit done.

Now though, Ultrahaptics is making gesture control a reality: in your car, in your kitchen, everywhere.

“We’re better than Minority Report – you don’t have to wear gloves,” says co-founder Tom Carter.


“Ultrahaptics lets you feel things in the air,” he explains. “We can make the sensations of buttons or switches, or enable you to feel 3D objects and sensations that don’t exist in the real world.”
