Haptic Feedback to Any Touch Surface

You can use AITO®HapticTouch for a wide range of applications. From buttons to sliders and screens, any touch interface becomes more powerful and sophisticated with our technology. Here we list a few use-case examples and the benefits they bring to our customers.

Seamless Touch Controls
Seamless Touch Controls
In Wood, Metal, Glass or Plastic

With traditional buttons out of the way, anything is possible. There are simply no restrictions on design, meaning you can create beautiful interfaces with any material, such as wood, metal, glass or plastic. 

The localised haptic feedback gives you a sense of control, letting you know you pushed the right button. And there’s no need to make cut-outs from the product surface: AITO®HapticTouch can be embedded from behind, creating a seamless front that looks stunning and is easier to clean too!

Feel the Keys

Superior Ease-of-Use

You can’t feel the keys on a standard touchscreen. But the ultra-fast and precise feedback of AITO®HapticTouch gives you the sensation of your touchscreen being embedded with physical buttons or shapes. This dramatically improves typing speed and reduces mistakes. And the system also knows how hard you pressed on a key, providing easy access to special characters or context-related functions.

Automotive Interior Controls

Hidden-Until-Lit

The clutter of buttons and knobs are slowly disappearing from car interiors. Essential functions should, however, remain easily accessible and within reach of driver and passengers. With AITO®HapticTouch, micro-click controls can be embedded into any part of the interior, including steering wheels, door panels, or overhead consoles. They disappear into the background until the function illumination is lit. Most importantly: the micro-click confirmation, that feels like a button press, ensures that drivers keep their eyes on the road.

Car Infotainment

Safe and Distraction Free

Infotainment systems are taking a central position in accessing an ever-increasing number of functions with cars. However, they are also a significant source of concern for driving safety. Touch displays cannot be easily operated without looking at the display during operation and can be a distraction for the driver. 

AITO®HapticTouch provides tactile feedback on every (virtual) button press, giving drivers instant confirmation, but without the need to take their eyes off the road. With lawmakers considering a ban on the use of smartphones while driving, our haptic feedback might soon appear in every car display.

Failure-Free Input Devices
Failure-Free Input Devices
Reduce Waste and Cost

Many consumer devices are wasted and scrapped every year because of malfunctioning parts. The mechanism that provides click feedback in laptop trackpads is a frequent source of failure, for example.

AITO®HapticTouch provides the same click confirmation, but without moving parts. It has been designed and tested to withstand 10 million presses without a single failure. And the ultra-thin form factor contributes to even slimmer and lighter laptop designs.
