Haptics extend brain-body map beyond visible AR screen.
Through extended proprioception, haptics help expand AR beyond the user’s visible screen.
The next big leap forward for AR will be improved user interactions. For mobile AR, the simplest way to accomplish this is through haptics.
Haptic technology allows the extension of your body into the digital space. This is done through the sense of extended proprioception, the inclusion of the mobile device as a part of your brain-body map. For example, with haptics, you can create activities outside the user’s visible window (mobile device screen) by adding off-screen effects. Or you can use haptics to emulate how something feels when you touch it in the digital space to make the interaction more realistic. With the ability to extend the body into the digital space, haptics broaden the use of AR in enterprise and consumer applications.
