AxonVR in the news
"AxonVR is showing off a haptic system that’s frankly pretty awesome... The result, when paired with visual suggestions from a headset, is a highly precise imitation of a real object.
For an apple, you’ll get a round, even pressure. The corner of a small block will poke at a specific point. When the deer lands on your palm, you can feel each of its tiny hooves."
“AxonVR reminded me that technology can be absolutely magical...
The touch sensation is presented with such precision and specificity that I’m tempted to say that imagination isn’t even necessary.
Saying that AxonVR has come up with a convincing simulation would be underselling what the HaptX experience is like.”
“AxonVR’s technology is clearly innovative and super cool… It’s difficult to describe the feeling and experience in words. It felt like my mind was playing tricks on me.”
"The most impressive part of the demo was when I got to place a virtual deer on my hand. I could feel the individual points of contact as the deer moved its legs around my hand... The experience raised the bar for what is capable with haptic feedback."
