This week’s happenings includes the news that Immersion Corp., a leading developer and licensor of touch feedback technology, just signed a license agreement with Shenzhen-based Realtime Technology Co., Ltd.
The agreement allows Immersion’s TouchSense Premium solution to be embedded in Realtime’s Pacewear smart wearable products.
“Realtime can now dramatically enhance its Pacewear wearables, such as smart watches, with tailored tactile effects using Immersion’s TouchSense Premium solution,” according to a provided statement. “It complements Immersion’s Intuitive Alerts Framework for wearables, turning notifications into intuitive tactile messages to make them more meaningful.”
The haptics create a much different sensation than an incoming text message on a smart watch.
“Touch is the latest design language of wearable devices, and I am confident that Pacewear can offer an enhanced user experience with our TouchSense technology,” said Shuo Liu, the General Manager of Immersion China. “Working together, we can bring even more possibilities to smart wearable products through the power of touch.”
TouchSense Premium is a best-in-class solution that includes effect customization services and onsite haptics design and software technical support. HD and multi-actuator options are offered as add-on modules.
