• What is a haptic device? Learn how haptic devices from 3D Systems can enhance your research and design workflows.

Designing with a sense of Touch with geomagic haptics

The Touch™ is a mid-range, professional haptic device (slotting just under the more premium Touch X™) used in research, 3D modeling, OEM applications, and more.

Touch is a motorized device that applies force feedback on the users' hand, allowing them to feel virtual objects and producing true-to-life touch sensations as users manipulates on-screen 3D objects. Leading companies integrate Touch haptic devices into their work to achieve compelling solutions using the realistic sense of touch. 

You can use Touch haptic devices in diverse applications including simulation, training, skills assessment, rehearsal, virtual assembly, robotic control, collision detection, machine interface design, rehabilitation, mapping, and more.

When used with the OpenHaptics® developer software toolkit, the Touch allows developers to design and deploy haptic programs rapidly, do mash-ups into existing applications, try out new ideas, and create haptically-enabled products. Touch is also sold as a component of Geomagic Freeform®.
