Our Purpose Of Existence
Touch is Critical to Interaction
For most of human history, humans have shaped the world through applying forces, pressure, touch on the things around us.
Through millions of years, we’ve developed cells, organs and neural structures to thoroughly monitor these forces.
So it only makes sense for us, designing natural, intuitive interactions for next-generation platforms, that we should be able to touch and feel things with our fingertips in these worlds as well.
Touch is Not Like Vision or Sound
Touch is hard to virtualize properly, because of some basic laws of physics and how we are built biologically. It’s hard to make you feel the full range of touch you need for good interactions in virtual worlds.
This is why we think we need to allow users to interact with real world objects and feel real tactile feedback.
We envision touch binding us to reality
We envision a future where it is exactly due to these reasons that touch will be a key human sense that binds us to reality.
It acts as a binding factor between the virtual and the real.
