Creativity in Haptics: Innovations from a Hackathon

The EE Times featured an article about a recent hackathon supported by TITAN Haptics. At the hackathon, the students of Delft University of Technology showcased the creative potential for the field of haptics by developing unique and novel haptics-based applications. The results were innovative and groundbreaking uses for haptic technology in our daily lives.

Among the most notable projects were an app that replicates the feeling of money (coins) moving around your pocket when you spend money virtually, a knob that sets the cook time for pasta based on tactile feedback, and a vest that uses haptics to help runners pace themselves. All of these projects showcased an inventive way of using haptics to interact with the world around us.

As the article exhibits, haptic technology is quickly emerging as a field that is redefining the human-machine interface (HMI) and enabling novel use cases and applications. The potential for haptic technology is immense, and we have only scratched the surface of what is possible. As the field continues to develop, haptics will soon come to play an integral role in our daily lives. Wth the right amount of creativity and inspiration, just like the students in the workshop, we can create new innovations that could revolutionize the way we live.
