Imagine being able to feel an article of clothing before you purchase it online or embrace a loved one via webchat. Our team of engineers is currently working to make these ideas into a reality. The project is focused on the development of a small, wireless, wearable devices that captures touch sensations using a proprietary sensor array, through the “sending” unit (below), transmit them, and then replay them using proprietary tactile display technology, through the “receiving” unit across the Internet.
As one of the design engineers on our team, my responsibility is to design and prototype the finger casing that will house our proprietary sensor array while maintaining an aesthetic and ergonomic form factor for the user. This is my sixth iteration in the design of the finger casing.
