THE TOUCH INTERACTION PARADIGM™ (TIP™).
At Tactai we have assembled an incredible team of engineers who have matched the hard science of recreating life-like touch sensations with precision engineering, and high-resolution hand-and-finger tracking to enable unprecedented levels of immersive control and interaction in touch-enabled applications with traditional touchscreens, on tablets and phones, and in next generation immersive environments like VR/AR.
And yes, we wrote software – our content transformation platform – to allow developers to touch-enable existing or new content by easily adding a “touch-channel” or “touch track” (Tactai TouchTrack™) to their content. We have packaged all the required technology in products and developer kits which are already being incorporated into next generation devices.We call this paradigm of introducing authentic tactile sensations in the human to computer interactions in order to augment the sensory channel and to enrich the user experience, the Touch Interaction Paradigm, TIP(tm).
The Science of Touch
To create truly powerful experiences in the virtual world, our team of world-leading haptics researchers delved deep into the physics and biology of how humans touch and feel in the natural world. This led to the development of our unique and proprietary touch technology that mimics nature – our Dynamic Tactile Wave™ – based on 15 years of research and development. It mirrors human biology, in that it closely recreates how we humans perceive the presence of objects and their surface characteristics when interacting with them in the real world..
The Magic of Sensors and Electro-Mechanics
Once we had perfected the reproduction of sensory elements, we added a number of other technologies to our Tactile Wave: software, sensors, actuators, and some other elements that just need to remain a mystery.
