• The haptic feedback created is both invisible and soundless and is capable of replicating textures, such as brick and metal. Theoretically, any texture can be recreated using ultrasound vibrations so long as the texture can be mapped, even something as complex as flowing water.
  • The startup is also working on ways to incorporate 3D shapes, as well as a way to make it small enough to be embedded in devices like smartphones and tablets. So far ultrasound speakers 1/40th of the size of the prototype have been developed.
  • The team is currently in discussions with several companies to help develop a demonstration of the technology within a virtual reality context, Beyond VR, Ultrahaptics sees use for this technology as a method of replacing controls for devices in everything from consumer electronics to home appliances.
