This solution is purely mechanical, it create finger force and touch texture with the same technology. This technology is based on ultrasonic vibration generated thanks to piezoelectrical actuators. The vibration sent on the glass screen modify the human finger's friction against the glass. We synchronize the vibration with the position of the finger, enabling the user to feel texture and to use finger force. With no added latency in delivering the haptic signal, hap2u technology responds in real time.

Company: Botpartner

Punchline: Conversation of Things

The main idea behind CoT (Conversation of Thing) is to communicate with objects. You can control the internet of appliances by simply talking to communication software. To make it reality, we base on state-of-the-art technology as well as the techniques of ChatBot popping up this year, and finally we’ve created practical CoT available for appliances. Besides, with AI growing rapidly, many developers realize the importance of the form in order to demonstrate and hope that bot, communication audience, can have more affinity. We move forward based on this idea, and we cooperate with the illustrator who has the experience of product development in Disney. We make a cartoon character called Louis. It is the form we will keep developing in AI later on and we will also release its comics as well as animations in order to develop the relationship with users. Botpartner was part of the Paris&Co Demo Day, part of the Paris Landing Pack_Explore.
