HAPTIC DESIGN PROJECT

Exploring the design technology of touch, transcending the boundaries of digital/analog and real/virtual.

What are we doing?

Approaches that utilize the sense of touch are attracting attention as a design technology method to further improve the experience of seeing and hearing that has been used as a means of expression and communication. The HAPTIC DESIGN PROJECT organizes events inviting researchers and creators from the haptic community. We are also involved in a number of joint research and development projects between the tactile design community and companies.

Why do we do it?

The reason FabCafe conducts research and development utilizing haptic technology is because we believe that technological development in the haptic field will become indispensable as communication that utilizes more physicality, as typified by the development of robotics and VR/AR, becomes more widespread. FabCafe also has a demo environment where you can experience various haptic technologies, so please come and try them out.
