Virtual force feedback projected onto your fingers

Mid-air force haptic feedback 

Augmented/Virtual reality lacks realism compared to traditional physical means which involves the human sense of touch. Mid-air haptics is an emerging technology that can enhance the realism of interaction with AR/VR. 

HapMag is an electromagnetic-based haptic interface that provides the user with both force and tactile haptic feedback in mid-air without direct contact with the system.


HapMag has been part of ACE Incubator (cohort fall 2021). ACE is a joint effort by UvA and VU to valorise science- and tech-based initiatives.
