At Ultrahaptics we create tactile sensations in mid-air. No controllers or wearables are needed: our patented “virtual touch” technology uses ultrasound to project shapes and textures directly onto the user’s hands. Controls can be operated without touching a surface, gestures can be enhanced with tactile feedback, and users can interact in a natural way with virtual objects.
Ultrahaptics was founded in 2013 based on technology developed at the University of Bristol, UK. 2014 seed funding; 2015 A round of funding of £10.1m ($15m) + European Commission Grant of €1.49m ($1.8m); 2017 B Round of £18.9m ($23m).
