The next generation of computer interaction has arrived

Feeling is Believing

A new wave of touch enabled physical computer interfaces (Haptics) means XR is no longer just sight and sound, the virtual world is quite literally within reach.
 
Toia®, haptic middleware, unlocks the full potential of these devices by simplifying and streamlining
the creation of touch enabled immersive experiences.

Toia® In Action

Toia® is being used to create interactive touch enabled experiences in all kinds of industries and sectors from music production to design, assistive technologies to surgical training, even to help stroke victims recover faster and relieve chronic, debilitating pain in amputees.

Working with haptic interfaces and designing touch enabled experiences is a completely new area for almost everyone, requiring specialist knowledge and experience.

The wide range of different haptic interfaces with no common design tools or standardised programming interfaces makes even getting started with haptics an uphill battle.

Toia® simplifies this, providing a single, simple authoring process to build realistic touch into XR regardless of the make or flavour of haptic interfaces in use.

Some of the world’s leading research institutions are using Toia to push the boundaries of what’s possible in VR.

Toia®: One interface for any device, and any application

Toia® haptic middleware provides a single, common interface to control the many makes and varieties of haptic interface that exist. Fully integrated into the Unreal Engine editor, haptic interfaces can be added to a scene with a simple drag and drop. 

The physical properties of objects, how they feel, deform and behave, can be adjusted with custom haptic materials. More complex behaviour can be added using Unreal’s BluePrint visual scripting system allowing infinite possibilities, without ever writing a single line of code.

Toia® Haptic Middleware

No programming or prior knowledge of haptics, robotics or physics is needed and everything necessary to create highly realistic, touch enabled virtual experiences is ready out of the box.

Frequently Asked Questions

We'd love to hear from you

Contact Us

We’re excited to hear from anyone working with haptics: device manufactures, researchers, content developers and the plain curious. We can assist with any aspect of the haptic development process to help integrate touch into your application or deliver complete touch enabled VR experiences.

We even run training workshops to up-skill teams with everything they need to know to work with haptics so please reach out and tell us how you want to get more “in touch” with the virtual world.
