Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A15-049
Budget: 08/01/16 - 05/31/17

The goal of this project is to develop a novel Surface Haptic feedback solution for geospatial 3D/4D visualization. Tangible Haptics LLC is proposing to apply a new technology that allows for control of both direction and magnitude of the in-plane forces felt by a users fingers while exploring a touch screen. Control over both the direction and ...
