HaptX makes technology that simulates touch sensation with unprecedented realism. HaptX Gloves enable natural interaction and realistic haptic feedback in virtual reality for the first time. Built with patented microfluidic technology, HaptX Gloves feature 130 points of touch feedback, apply 4 lbs. of resistive force feedback per finger, and track hand motions with sub-millimeter precision.
Synapse was introduced to the HaptX team when they attended SteamVR Tracking training courses at our Synapse Seattle office in 2016. We met again at the 2018 GeekWire Summit and discussions around product development collaboration began shortly after.
During the project, Synapse guided HaptX’s transition from R&D to a commercial product company by providing HaptX with critical connections to a contract manufacturer and future investment partners.
