Tacterion has developed the unique tactile sensor technology “sensorskin”. Sensorskin is a stretchable sensory silicone layer for making curved, soft and complex objects sensitive to touch and pressure. Measuring pressure and touch like on a trackpad, it acts like a very soft skin layer that can be integrated into wearables and textiles, cars, steering wheels, blankets, bed linen or applied in the gaming industry. Sensorskin helps creating the next generation of intuitive Human-Machine-Interfaces and truly responsive products. Allowing technology to step back and putting the user first, the technology has the potential to revolutionise the way humans interact with technology. It enables designers to think products differently and human-centred, i.e. driven by haptics.
