what are haptic technologies? <ul><li>Haptic technologies are technologies which allow users to receive a form of feedback in the forms of shocks, vibrations, temperature or even electrical charges. </li></ul>
uses. <ul><li>Haptic technologies are commonly used in these areas: </li></ul><ul><li>Virtual Reality </li></ul><ul><li>Video Games </li></ul><ul><li>Medicine </li></ul><ul><li>Art and Design </li></ul><ul><li>Robotics </li></ul>
virtual reality & video games. <ul><li>Haptic technologies are used in these areas to stimulate the application to make it more realistic. For example, vibrations occur from shooting a large weapon. </li></ul><ul><li>Many video games, such as Microsoft Flight Simulator are available as games, but are also used as training applications to enhance the learning process with no consequences. </li></ul>
medicine. <ul><li>Haptic technologies are also used in medicine in a similar way to their use in video games. They enhance the learning process and provide a more realistic and hands-on approach. Used with new or inexperienced staff. </li></ul>
robotics. <ul><li>Haptic technologies have been a great improvement in the robotics field. Haptic technologies allow robots and artificial intelligence to become more human like through the five senses - taste, feel, hear, see and smell. </li></ul>
art & design. <ul><li>The art and design industry, specifically the architect industry has improved recently through the implementation of haptic technologies. Haptic technologies have enabled architects to make collaborative changes to plans with a touch screen. This allows them to move, resize, scroll and nowadays any other actions. </li></ul>
