Haptic Master development
•
•
•
•
•
Cheaper manufacturing (factor of 2 to start with)
Simplified software
Better control (lower virtual mass)
Simpler API
CHAI-3D and other world toolkits

Rehab robots
•
•
•
•
•
Neural rehabilitation of stroke patients
Long standing interest
Slow development and clinical testing
Sales to various institutes

6-DOF version Touch and Design
•
•
•
•
•
•
Virtual clay modelling for the car industry
Three year EU project (STREP), ends this year
Project leader Politecnico di Milano
Customers involved: Pininfarina, Alessi, Eiger
Combines two Haptic Masters into a single 6-DOF device
Works very well
• Useful spin-off would be a 5-DOF HM with gripper

Satin encountered ribbon display
•
•
•
•
Three year EU project (STREP) starting end of this year
Follow-on for Touch and Design
Exploring virtual surfaces
Curving strip encountered device

Dental trainer: drilling, root canal treatment
Development for ACTA starting this month
Small size, newly developed haptic device
Graphics colocated, stereo
Market interest in US (Harvard et al.)
US partner for scans of teeth (Stanford)

•
Intuitive is suddenly rich and arrogant
Very limited applicability
Grossly expensive
Historical mistake to go remote master-slave (military history)
• Market opportunity for simpler, more versatile tools
• AMC has good ideas, try to interest MOOG USA
