HaptX Gloves DK2
  • HaptX Gloves DK2

    HaptX Gloves DK2 is a development kit made for simulation, design, and research professionals who are pioneering the future of VR and robotics.

    HaptX Gloves DK2 provide realistic touch sensation unlike any other device. Built with patented microfluidic technology, they’re the only gloves that deliver industrial-grade performance required for professional applications.

    The only gloves with true-contact haptics
    Patented technology displaces your skin the same way a real object would. With 133 points of tactile feedback per hand, HaptX Gloves DK2 achieves a level of realism that other haptic devices can’t match.

    The strongest force feedback

    Lightweight exotendons apply up to 40 lbs. (175 N) of resistive force per hand, nearly double the strength of other force feedback gloves.


    The most accurate motion tracking

    Proprietary magnetic motion capture system tracks 30 DoF per hand with sub-millimeter precision, no occlusion, and no perceivable latency.


    Full-body mobility

    Roam freely through room-scale VR with full-body avatars featuring accurate inverse kinematics.


    Multi-user networking

    Collaborate in real-time from anywhere in the world with multi-user haptic VR experiences.


    Microfluidic skin
    Microfluidic skin provides true-contact haptics for realism that other haptic devices can’t match. Tactile actuators displace skin up to 2mm to apply physical pressure, replicating the sensation of real-world objects. Actuators are tightly packed together in flexible, silicone panels and woven into the gloves. With more than 130 points of feedback per hand, HaptX Gloves DK2 achieves fingertip-level realism, setting a new benchmark for haptic feedback performance.


    Force feedback exoskeleton

    Lightweight force-feedback exoskeleton is powered by the same actuation technology as our skin. HaptX’s high-power-density, pneumatic actuators enable the exotendons in our HaptX Gloves to apply up to eight lbs. of force to per digit (40 lbs. per hand). These resistive forces complement the true-contact haptics produced by the microfluidic skin, enhancing the perception of size, shape, and weight of virtual objects.


    Magnetic motion tracking

    Realistic haptic feedback requires extremely precise motion tracking. HaptX developed a proprietary motion capture system that leads the industry in accuracy.

    HaptX’s magnetic motion tracking and hand simulation system achieves sub-millimeter precision, with 30 degrees of freedom (DoF) per hand, no perceivable latency, and no occlusion. HaptX software automatically generates an individualized, physically-accurate hand model and renders a full body avatar for enhanced immersion.

    Powerful pneumatics
    HaptX is pioneering a new generation of precision pneumatic components. Their Air Controller dynamically routes airflow for precise haptic performance. Featuring nearly 150 pressure regulated channels, it can fully inflate any actuator in HaptX Gloves in less than 30ms, resulting in no perceptible latency. With desktop and backpack configurations, it delivers industrial-grade haptics without sacrificing mobility. Their Smart Compressor provides continuous air supply with quiet operation. With a compact, low maintenance design, it can operate inside offices and other noise-sensitive environments.


    Software development kit

    The HaptX SDK enables developers to create touch-enabled experiences. At the heart of the HaptX SDK is a framework for physical simulation of haptic interactions.

    With SteamVR support and plug-ins for Unreal Engine and Unity, it’s easy to create haptic VR experiences for HaptX Gloves DK2. We provide a low-level C++ API that’s ROS-capable, allowing for integration with robotic equipment.
