Ground-breaking start-up brought screens to life at technology tradeshow

Cédrick Chappaz, CEO of HAP2U said, “The HAP2U technology really brings a new dimension to touch screen technology unlike no other. The rise in touch screen and virtual reality technology has brought the demand for more immersive experiences to the forefront of the industry. HAP2U really plugs that gap and satisfies those wanting to enhance their experiences – or indeed make them easier.

Technology is one of the most important parts of modern life, but it does have its limitations. Even with the adoption of 3D tech, there's only so absorbed into a programme users can get - until now. HAP2U is an advanced haptic tech for touch screens that allows users to feel textures, interactions and feedback to really bring devices to life. Developed by a French start-up, the company's patented technology has gone down a storm in the industry - most recently at the renowned consumer electronics and technology tradeshow, CES 2017, where the game-changing tech wowed visitors before walking away with two awards.

"Our attendance at the CES was incredible. Not only did we come away with two awards - the CES Innovation Award and the Best of CES 2017 from Techaeris - but we also made some amazing connections with people in a number of industries such as automotive, mobile and marketing as well as individual consumers who were amazed to see, first-hand, how our tool works."
CES has been the launch pad for new innovation and technology for the last 50 years. Always at the forefront of new tech, it attracts leading exhibitors as well as new start-ups in a number of technology-heavy sectors. Widely known as the world's gathering place for all who thrive on the business of consumer technologies and where next-generation innovations are introduced to the marketplace, the Haptic Touch Screen was a big hit, with visitors keen to touch the screen and learn more about HAP2U's commitment to pushing the boundaries of consumer technology.
HAP2U's revolutionary innovation, known as the haptic driver, simply fits into touchscreen devices under the processing unit and brings it to life at the touch of the screen. The whole process is based on ultrasonic vibrations that control the friction and allow the implementation of a number of features. This then allows for users to easily control devices without looking at the screen and get really immersed into games to make them more effective players.
