The Haply project seeks to provide accessibility to force-feedback haptic technology. Most commercially available haptic devices are closed-sourced and extremely application specific. Due to this constraint and coupled with an expensive price, haptic application development remains highly inaccessible both from a cost and knowledge base perspective.
Designed to be highly configurable and modifiable, the haply kit offers high fidelity at affordable prices. Built with the enthusiast, maker, and researcher in mind, application and development software revolves around open-source community support.
With a deep background in developing virtual reality and haptic applications. Colin's areas of interest and study include rendering rigid body contacts in virtual environments, modelling multibody dynamics for robotic manipulators, and optimizing the design of haptic devices. Designing and creating applications and devices for Haply.
