The Academic Program launched by the Bristol-based startup aims to foment the development of novel use cases for its technology, at the forefront of haptics research.

Academic partners working with Ultrahaptics have already created a range of haptic effects using the firm’s core technology. Last year, University of Sussex researchers created a so called “9D TV” for a viewing experience including stimulants on the sense of sight, hearing, taste, smell and touch. The firm has also forged links with both MIT and the University of Tokyo.

“It’s great to be working with such diverse research teams and Universities around the world committed to furthering insight into haptics and ultrasound technology. I am excited about this opportunity to accelerate investments into R&D and create a vibrant community of experts collaborating, sharing insights and driving innovation in this space”, stated Orestis Georgiou, manager of Ultrahaptics’ Academic Program.
