Welcome to this webpage accompanying the book “Engineering Haptic Devices”. The book is available in print and online from Springer since September 2014.
On this page, you will find additional information about the different topics of the book , information about haptics-related conferences and other interesting stuff regarding haptics. Just have a look at the categories on the left side.
We are also eager to hear from you about your experiences with the book – just send us a mail to firstname.lastname@example.org or post a comment on this page!
The 2015 Joint Eurohaptics Conference and IEEE Haptics Symposium – widely known as WorldHaptics Conference – took place at Northwestern University, Evanston, IL from June 22nd to 25th. Located at the beautiful campus right on Lake Michigan, the conference brought together a lot of the leading haptics researchers from all over the world. Continue reading WorldHaptics2015→
Since a couple of days, Google features selected Android games with haptic feedback in an own category in the GooglePlayStore. Games are based on Immersion’s TouchSense® Engage haptic technology to add tactile effects to mobile games.
UPDATE: There is also an app by Immersion called Haptic Effect Preview that gives a good preview of the TouchSense Haptic Effects library. Be sure to check, whether your device includes the hardware needed in the app – it will work also with other devices, but the quality of the feedback will decrease.
Despite the haptics-specific conferences, there are a couple of conferenes with at least haptic-specific sessions. Especially for the design of task-specific haptic systems, the bi-annual ACTUATOR conference in Bremen, Germany, is one of them.
