SX Create: When Your Devices Decide to Touch You Back

14 March 2015 11:00 - 14 March 2015 12:00

In the beginning, we twisted knobs and pushed buttons to interact with our devices. Later we started tapping on, talking to and waving at them. Somewhere along the way, these devices learned how to physically communicate back to us.

Welcome to haptics, a technology where touch is a two-way experience between a device and its user. Using vibration, air, temperature and sound our devices can instantly create human-like interactions.

What happens when your devices decide to touch you back? In this panel you’ll see into the near future: how haptics are changing the way we shop, have sex, learn, exercise and treat the sick.

Technologist Rohit Thawani will make you learn, laugh, maybe cry a little, and leave you excited to transform the way your product or app interacts can with your users.
