In our LIVE tonight at 6 p.m., we are going to talk about haptic feedback with Vincent Hayward, professor at the Sorbonne University (Paris) and member of theAcademy of Sciences. His research focuses on touch and the engineering of haptic interfaces. He is scientific advisor at Actronika, a company he co-founded, which creates haptic systems for industry and professionals. We are going to try to understand if tricking our senses with objects of this kind is as easy as it seems.
The haptic jacket skinetic therefore take advantage of this expertise and this experience to offer sensations far superior to what exists today. We tried it and we were pleasantly surprised compared to what we knew with the Woojer Vest or the TactSuit X40 and TactSuit X16 from bHaptic. We are going to talk about it this evening with the professor, but also Thomas Begeot, a computer scientist with a Master’s degree in Embedded Systems and Information Processing (Paris-Saclay University) and with strong skills in systems architecture and calculation. state-of-the-art computing acquired from the CNRS, IEF and UPMC, which will tell us a little more about technology, such as integration into games and relations with studios.
