Innovation & Haptic Touch, with Chris Ullrich
On this week’s episode of the podcast we look at innovation and haptic touch. We talk about why touch is a powerful untapped sense, how touch technology may eventually enable entirely new forms of communication, and why you shouldn’t be alarmed to hear that your clothes may soon reach out and touch you.
Chris Ullrich, Vice President of User Experience at Immersion Corporation, joins us to talk about these topics and more. Immersion is one of the worldwide leaders in haptic touch technology. At Immersion, Chris is responsible for ensuring that haptic products and technologies designed by the company are highly valued by users, developers, and OEM customers. Since joining Immersion in 2000, Chris has worked across departments to innovate, develop, and bring to market a variety of technologies. He has also directed software research and development in 3-D, directed the medical simulation engineering team, and led the design and development of next-generation surgical instruments.
