Custom Hardware

Our team develops custom modifications of the Novint Falcon and the Novint XIO to meet the application-specific needs of our clients, including the needs for improved precision, torques, workspace, range of motion, ergonomics, and handle shape.


Haptic Software

We develop high-fidelity touch-enabled software for a variety of platforms, from tablets to touchscreen monitors to our own haptic devices. Our haptic-enabling technologies allow the rapid development of high-quality content, and our broad library of sophisticated 2D and 3D haptic effects can be used to enhance nearly any application imaginable.

System Development

Our team develops turnkey-system solutions that are both highly-effective and priced for deployment. Whether you're looking for a simulation system to install across dozens of locations or for a portable marketing and training tool to travel with your sales force, our team has the experience and facilities to deliver out-of-the-box solutions to fit your unique specifications.


Simulation & Training

The addition of 3D touch to a simulation environment can improve training outcomes by accentuating key elements of the scenario or procedure being practiced, by providing the user with opportunities to develop functional muscle memory, by increasing the level of immersion, and simply by making the virtual world more enjoyable to experience.

Planning & Analysis

Novint's software technologies make it possible to interact with and interpret scanned data sets (e.g. MRI, CT, 3D ultrasound data) directly and intuitively using touch. Our technology can, for instance, allow physicians to analyze 3D structures (e.g. tumors, arterial calcifications) more effectively than when 2D media, such as traditional film, is used.

Modeling & Visualization

The use of haptics as an additional sensory channel in the exploration of multivariate 3D data sets can be an extremely powerful interpretive strategy. The addition of touch can help the user better understand, for example, the topology and topography of a terrain map.

Telerobotics

Novint's hardware technologies serve as highly-effective and affordable Operator Control Units for telerobotic systems. Custom modifications can enhance operator performance even further by providing tactile cues regarding the status of the "slave" system. The grasper grip attachment shown at left, for instance, allows the operator to feel the object being held between the jaws of a robotic arm.


Product Marketing

Our team can equip your salesforce with unique, 3D interactive, touch-enabled demonstrations for kiosks, booths, or live sales calls, in order to build excitement, draw traffic, reinforce key messaging, and create positive associations with your products and brands. The simulation shown to the left was deployed by our client to promote a major pharmaceutical to physicians as a treatment option.
