Aslatech will participate in the world’s largest technology exhibition CES 2020 opening in Las Vegas on Jan. 7-10 to showcase its sound-based next-gen haptic technology.
Aslatech developed sound-based haptic modules and it is applied to game controllers, gaming mice, and VR devices. This outstanding haptic technology that is superior to existing vibration motors will be introduced in CES 2020.
Aslatech’s haptic module uses haptic actuators using piezo technology and haptic software using sound as one module to be applied not only to the existing game console controller but also to PC mouse, keyboard, VR device, and smartphone cover. Mouse and haptic pads for smartphones have already been made with the cooperation with partners and are being sold.
This sound-based haptic module technology is expected to be the next-gen of tactile delivery technology because it can deliver a higher resolution haptic effect to the user compared to the vibration motor method, which previously delivered only simple vibration. In addition, even in streaming games that are emerging as a new game market, it enables the same high-resolution haptic effects in playing other company’s streaming games with different types of controllers or even by using other platforms, like PCs, TVs, and smartphones to play games.
Aslatech hopes to collaborate with professional gaming device manufacturers to pioneer new haptic technology markets.
