Sensible touch / Products and Applications

Sensible touch
Sensible touch

This is a completely new design concept. The existing smart messaging devices can only convey sound and video. We have re-defined the concept of "temperature." This product provides three kinds of communication.
First: with the principle of electrostatic stimulation to make the product simulate feelings of being touched and lightly pressed.
Second: with the principle of cellphone vibration to simulate feelings of being tapped and beat, with its strength greater than that of the former.
Third: with the principle of airbag compression to simulate feelings of long-lasting pressure.
Let the temperature no longer be a long-distance nostalgia.
