We simplify devices interactions with touch sense.rnThirdSense is developing a next-generation of haptic interactive technology that makes the surface of objects intelligent by covering them with a controlled fluid. That defines the fluidic haptics.rnrnOur technology covers the surface of things with a matrix of Tixels (Touch Pixels) that cages a controlled fluid to:rn- deform it to create dynamic 3D buttonsrn- detect user interactionsrn- send rich haptic feedbacks to usersrnThe whole is controlled by proprietary software that creates the magic!rnrnOur tech goes where you usually put your hands. You interact remotely with different devices, with no effort.rnrnIn the Gaming Industry, we transform a gamepad into a morphic gamepad creating dedicated buttons for each game with increased sensitivity and feedbacks.rnWe are bringing a new capability to machines thanks to the human ability of touch and bridge the gap between man and machine.
