Laval, September 2017 – Ideas are easy. Implementation is hard.
                                                                                            "Guy Kawasaki"


At Haption, 2017 started on hubcaps when a brand new product was being revealed: the HGlove.


The HGlove is the latest evolution in terms of hand haptic device. It is able to deliver force feedback on 3 fingers with 9 degrees of freedom, its reduced weight ensure you to use it for long sessions and you can adapt it to different hand sizes.


The HGlove was first showcased at Laval Virtual, where it won a Laval Virtual Award. It was then brought to the tables of WorldHaptics, ART Days, and finally to IVR, in Japan. The HGlove already met a tremendous success!




The HGlove is compatible with our existing hardware. Attach it to a Scale1 to create the best physical interaction ever in a virtual world. 


We are currently working on its integration with our physics engine IPSI, to enable the functionality with the following platforms:

  • Dassault Systèmes : Catia/Delmia V5, 3D Experience, Solidworks
  • Siemens : Tecnomatix Process Simulate, Classic Jack

 The support will come step by step. We will of course keep you all informed when it becomes available on these software.


The HGlove comes out from many years of research and tuning, the latest project being named Mandarin, funded by a National French Research Project (ANR). Mandarin was awarded a trophy at the ANR Days in November 2016. A resume in French can be found below:


The HGlove was also recently the object of an article on the website Le Mag Numérique - in French too:





Robotic Advancements


Laval, February 2017 – Haption has relentlessly worked on what some might call minor improvements, others big steps.


Compatibility with ROS

After a first draft with our customer from KU Leuven, we are proud to release a Virtuose package for ROS : Robot Operating System platform.

This is the first stage for our customers to rely on a solid base before pushing further into a personalized integration into the platform.



Coupling with KUKA

On the way to create ways to new use cases, a coupling with Kuka's famous Iiwa robot was started and we quickly realized major achievements!

Showroom in Laval


Laval, June 2016 – After a few days on installation, testing and painting, Realyz and Haptions's combined efforts will finally pay as the "Hapticube" showroom is now ready.


The year 2015 was a good test for Haption's latest product the Scale1, as 5 of those systems were installed during this period.


This is why we decided we needed to be able to let our partners and customers to have the chance to try it by themselves. This desire came alive by the partnership with Realyz to implement such a system in Laval.


The goal is to invite our customers to try their data in a large-scale haptic device with a CAVE or HMD environment, with the latest technology in terms of tracking and software.
